SONG OF THE DAY The Little Flames – The Day Is Not Today

postToday’s song comes from an album that was originally recorded back in 2006.  It closely followed a run of singles released via Liverpool’s Deltasonic label and was near to completion when the band split and each member went their own way in pursuit of their own projects.  Sadly this debut never surfaced……until now!

The Little Flames formed in 2004, originating from Hoylake in Merseyside and consisted of key members Eva Petersen (vocals), Joe Edwards (Bass), Mat Gregory (Guitar), Miles Kane (Guitar) and Greg Mighall (drums).  Shortly before their debut album was due for release in 2007 the band decided to split with Miles, Joe and Greg forming The Rascals and Mat and Eva continuing to work separately on various music and art projects.

Recorded at Sweden’s Tambourine Studios and titled ‘The Day Is Not Today,’ this LP blissfully recreated a sound that combined the influences of Krautrock, Motown, 60’s garage, film music and the symphonic pop of artists like Serge Gainsbourg and Françoise Hardy.  Nearly nine years later and as part of the re-launch of Deltasonic and reissue series this album is finally going to be released and will be available on 4th March.

Ahead of this the band have shared title track (and previously unheard track)  ‘The Day Is Not Today’ which is packed full of timeless charm, driven by a 60’s swing-by rhythm and defined by its haunting cinematic melody…its bloody great!  Listen above.
