The Little Unsaid
The Little Unsaid made their TLR debut back in December 2016 as part of a double bill of Yorkshire-born musicians. We had sought them out after seeing them play their hauntingly beautiful music by chance on several YouTube videos.
The band release a new album for Reveal Records (home of Lau, Joan As Police Woman, Eddi Reader and more) in 2018, ‘Atomise’. Fronted by songwriter, John Elliott, they are a band with an original sound and international outlook. The Little Unsaid have spent the last year touring Europe, leaving audiences emotionally rapt with a live show that’s been described as ‘a thumping depth of passion’.
Their sound is all their own but echoes the intensity and melancholic overtones of greats such as Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen. 2017’s critically-acclaimed Imagined Hymns & Chaingang Mantras album was recorded with Radiohead engineer and film score producer Graeme Stewart. The Little Unsaid embrace elements of rock, folk, electronica, jazz and alt-pop. One of the UK’s must-see rising live acts and recent winners of the Steve Reid award for Innovation.
