‘Today’ soothes the listener with an endearing yet hazy musical familiarity with its swirls and blurred sonic edges, hanging in the air with raw emotion, cocooning the listener. The more upbeat ‘Television’ ramps up the energy with a very real statement on the situation with modern-day TV. Both tracks present perfect pop viewed through a technicolor prism.
The new single is being released on Anklebreka Records, named after a local landmark where Littlewood grew up, the spelling being a ‘nod’ to regional dialect. Written, produced and mastered by Paul Littlewood at Higher Rhythm in Doncaster, UK, he also played all instruments on this track, except for kit and bass guitar, which were performed by Graham Sutherland.
The video for ‘Today’, Littlewood says: “I wanted to carry the theme of the found-tapes into the making of the video, and simply chart the making of a record. ‘Today’ was recorded in a day, at the studio that I work (Higher Rhythm, Doncaster) and was shot by Skinny Pelembe, whose single I had recently engineered. I can remember we were all excited about the track, and also Skinny’s upcoming debut release on Brownswood records, and I think this can be felt in the recording, and the video. There was a feeling that everything was coming together.”
Littlewood primarily performs and records as a solo artist, but has also appeared with a number of bands including Fights, Fallen Trees, andEastern Seaboard Radio Station. In addition to Anklebreka Records, Littlewood has released a number of recordings in the last 15 years via various other labels, including British label Xtra Mile Recordings and US-based label Three Sixty Records.
