London’s Joe Connor Little stuns on intimate new single ‘Always’; a tender portrait of new love – the track trades on stirring melodies and a restrained acoustic production. Little is beginning to establish himself as a talent on the indie songwriting scene, delivering rousing songs and powerful performances.
“I guess what I’m picking at is the wide-eyed rejection of this feeling, in the incorruptible belief that everything will work out as it should. Early Summer 2019 saw the beginnings of one of my life’s more significant relationships. Encumbered by poor timing and unfortunate circumstances, the following months proved to be disorientating and emotional. ‘Always’ was written at the start, and is I think a candid and honest depiction of how I felt at the time; tender, warm and starry-eyed.” – Joe Connor Little
“I wanted to create a sound that echoed that tenderness with an intimacy that put as little space as possible between the listener and myself. For that reason, I limited the use of instruments, effects or harmonies, and dispelled percussion entirely – bar the shaker in the choruses.” – Joe Connor Little
