Little Mammoths ( feat. Matt Owens – Noah and the Whale )
Little Mammoths are performing a stripped down acoustic version of their set in The Attic!
Little Mammoths are a London-based Rock’n’Roll Bar Band formed in 2014, that continue charging down the vein of The Hold Steady, Drive-by Truckers and Wilco.
Their debut album ‘Phantom Dreams’ was released on vinyl in the Spring of 2017, compromising a set of raucous songs about the goings-on at nightly lock-ins the band were surrounded by over 3 years of touring the West Coast of Ireland and The Scottish Highlands. Its raw energy prompted Texan legend Ray Wylie Hubbard to declare: “If your ears dig gnawing on the gritty sounds from a young, dirty, cool rock band, I just found Little Mammoths who satisfy the craving…”
The quartet’s constant gigging and tireless work ethic often results in straight sets in excess of 4 hours, and has seen their road-hardened material performed to ecstatic crowds alongside Mumford & Sons, Fat White Family and Bahamas and at international festivals including Wilderness, Loopallu and The Clonakilty Guitar Festival.
Little Mammoths will release their eagerly anticipated second album ‘Cargo for The Road’ this summer, with pedal steel player Ray Harvey-Whyte now firmly in the fold and backed by a 3 piece horn section. The band are set promote the record through 2017 with extensive touring around Europe, and a full UK festival run, including Glastonbury.
