Now given that Edge Hill University is just 'up the road' from Ralph's kennel and The Farm's Carl Hunter (who is a senior lecturer at the university) heads up their newly formed record label The Label Recordings which has just recorded a track for Liverpool duo The Little Secrets, it's only fair he had a listen in.
Indie popsters The Little Secrets have just released All I Need and it's a gloriously exuberant piece of shiny pop which has already garnered critical acclaim and mainstream radio play. Janice Long was quoted as saying - "It's like having sunshine poured in your ears".
The Little Secrets formed in 2010 after meeting at The Cavern, Stacy was singing with another band when Kevin spotted her and decided to ‘steal’ her for his new project. After two years of writing together and experimenting with different line-ups and sounds, the pair hit on their infectious slice of pop, echoing the likes of Glasgow's Camera Obscura and Ralph's long time favourites BMX Bandits (all the best Indie Pop comes from Scotland of course).
“We asked ourselves what kind of songs would we like to hear and set about writing them” Kevin explains. “The songs are written as a true partnership, both musically and lyrically. The initial idea can start from either one of us and is then crafted further towards the sound we are trying to create, infusing as many of our influences as possible.”
As it's Christmas and Ralph's Radio KC Show is taken up with The Crimble Top 50 next week and his 100 'Best Of' extravaganza to celebrate his 100th Show on the 28th, it'll be the January 4th Sunday Indie Show before he'll be spinning All I Need, so be sure and tune in!
