Good news! ‘Bullet in a Gun‘, released this month, is our newest single from Little Sparks and the track your favorite DJ should be spinning. We sent off the cd’s this week, so we imagine music people across the country are hunched over their stereos weeping with emotion and deleting their playlists… Originally recorded as a one take demo in the back streets of Madrid, it’s become one of the highlights of our live shows. Which is a good sign!
Preparations are underway for the ‘Bullet in a Gun’ Tour and we’re really excited to bring its warm glow to Ireland for the month of December. We’re looking forward to some truly memorable nights, so check our tour schedule and be sure to get your tickets before they go! (if there’s any song that you’re particularly looking forward to seeing let us know in the comments below!)
Go here now to get tickets for our Vicar St, Dublin show:
Here for Galway, Derry, Belfast and Kerry
and here for our Cork Show in the Pavilion!
We’re also in The Ruby Rooms, Castlebar; Dolans, Limerick and the Spirit Store, Dundalk – please contact the venues for tickets! Looking forward to seeing you!
Speaking of memorable occasions, we recently played in the stunning setting of an historic bull ring in Murcia where Hotpress magazine came to check us out. (follow the link to a little piece on the Hotpress site.) http://www.hotpress.ie/archive/9277640.html Look out for a full report with pics in Hot Press at the end of November..
Plus we just joined our friends, Villagers in Bitterzoet, Amsterdam, a great night and show! Our gig was described by one blog as “Surprisingly good”, Which is a complement I think?! We’re doing promo and sessions and stuff in the Netherlands to mark the release of the album over here ahead of, hopefully, a tour in the new year. Sweet eh? Amsterdam in particular is an exception city. If you’re a good boy, of course.
Another special little moment recently was performing on Philip King’s “South Wind Blows Live” for RTE 1’s Big Music Week. Here’s a little video of a song from our set. We were nervous before we went on, it felt very, um, mature… I think we did well though, it felt special anyway.
Finally, we also added to our Little Sparks Acoustic Sessions, with this video of The Stream, made with AerTv. It has a random slightly surreal element if you haven’t seen it… (we don’t know this man by the way, and it wasn’t set up…)
Thanks for reading and we hope you enjoy the videos – Hopefully see you in December at one of the shows above!
Keep an ear out for Bullet in a Gun, and if you’d like to hear it, ask your favorite DJ person!. If you’d like to ask us anything, or even just say hello, drop a note in the comments section below. Take care!
