Little Comets On World Cafe
Little Comets, a trio from Newcastle upon Tyne, England, recently released its U.S. debut, Life Is Elsewhere. Described early in its career as a British Vampire Weekend, the band smoothly incorporates tricky percussive rhythms and Afrobeat-tinged guitars.
Led by brothers Michael and Robert Coles, the trio combines a joyful, rhythmic guitar rush with lyrical subjects that range from serious to playful — sometimes simultaneously. On Wednesday's episode of World Cafe, Little Comets' members perform some of their songs and discuss their thought-provoking lyrics.
