Little Acres have just released their latest single and video in their ‘Song Sessions’ series, Go To Sleep. The band who are a female led group of co-leaders, they hope to play a part in opening up the conversation for a healthier music community that promotes equality and creates opportunities for all. The band spoke with The Fountain about the new video as well as their hopes and plans for the year.
TF: You have a new single out, what can we expect from Go To Sleep?
Go To Sleep is our second release. As a band we are passionate sharing thoughts and ideas around mental health, particularly in this strange year we have all lived through. The song explores how we collectively reach for the close connections we have during these confusing times, in order to see us through. These connections can be found anywhere and as close as the air we breath. We have many musical influences between us and it’s been great to merge creative ideas together over the last year in order to create our own ‘sound’. Go To Sleep is a perfect example of us finding our voice.
TF: How would you sum up the track in one sentence?
A simple journey outside your four walls will help find what’s hidden inside.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
We plan to just keep creating together. Keep sharing new music and hopefullly work towards a full EP/album in the future. Alongside our own creative output, we would also like to keep collaborating with other songwriters/musicians.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging again?
The 02 academy was a really special gig for us. As was singing at St Andrews in the Square with Rachel Sermanni, although that venue has closed now. To be honest, playing anywhere to a live audience will bring so much joy. We have a gig in the diary in November we are very excited about, which has been rescheduled about three times due to restrictions, so hopefully that’ll be going ahead at Drygate, which is an amazing venue to play.
