DIY band Little Comets have shared the sunny, syncopated track ‘Common Things’ from their upcoming album, ‘Worhead’ set for release March 10th via The Smallest Label. ‘Common Things’ is a reflective track about enjoying the common things in a relationship, even if those common things include such sensory, uncompromising delights as being regularly re-contaminated by cold sores, as is the case presented here.
Talking on the track Rob Coles (vocals and guitar) says:
“I suppose it is semi-autobiographical up to a point as I am quite a simple person and take more from the gaps than the need to fill them…Me and Mickey (as usual) wrote this one in his garage after Mickey had been playing a really obscure riff, which we adapted for the chorus melody. The verses came later as the need for a narrative became apparent.
I think what helped is that the chorus line paints a real picture of what the verses should be about. It was just a case of filling in the bits of the story; which fed from the idea of a couple being satisfied with just the simple things.”
