Fronted by Snow Patrol guitarist Nathan Connolly and featuring alumni of Idlewild, LaFaro, and Bell X1, Little Matador is somewhat of a rock supergroup that, on the basis of this single at least, certainly demands to be listened to.
With a pulsating rhythm throughout and a hugely hard hitting drumbeat, ‘Stitch Yourself Up‘ has an absolutely massive instrumental sound and the vocals also sit strongly in the sound to provide for an incredibly impressive single. The band use all their years of experience here as they slam their way through the song with fantastic intensity and power. The track has a relatively simple structure, it’s hugely effective, however, with an incredible amount of drive as the band struts its way through the track with incredible confidence and style. Little Matador is a band that has evidently set out with a firm idea of exactly what sound they’re going for, and not only do they have a clear direction for the band but they also have the talent and the experience to pull it off in style.
If you like an intense, in-your-face rock sound, Little Matador is definitely a band for you and you should certainly look to give their ‘Stitch Yourself Up‘ single a listen if you haven’t already done so.
‘Stitch Yourself Up‘ is taken from the band’s self-titled début album which is due to drop on April 21st, and if this track is anything to go by then it could well be one of the most explosive rock releases of 2014.
