Rock You Like A Little Hurricane


Little Hurricane are proud to unveil their stunning and brilliantly shot video for ‘OTL’, taken from their upcoming new album ‘Same Sun Same Moon’, out April 14th via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group (Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Black Stone Cherry, Walter Trout, Gov’t Mule, Monster Truck)

Anthony “Tone” Catalano (Guitar/Vocals) and Celeste “C.C.” Spina’s (Drums/Vocals) story began in San Diego, where Little Hurricane formed. Having recently resumed playing drums after an eight-year hiatus, CC placed a musicians-wanted ad on Craigslist. Among the myriad of respondents was Tone, a studio engineer who’d worked with artists ranging from John Paul Jones to Gwen Stefani. The two musicians were neighbours who had never met, and bonded over mutual interests including the blues, unusual and vintage gear, and their individual experiences playing in high school jazz bands. A year later, Little Hurricane won three San Diego Music Awards, including Album of the Year for 2011 debutHomewrecker. Little Hurricane’s explosive live show soon landed them slots at major festivals including Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza, and garnered media attention from outlets including Rolling Stone, which profiled them in an extensive behind-the-scenes piece at SXSW 2012.

With so much history behind the band, their new record is a nod to it’s predecessors Homewrecker(2011) and Gold Fever (2014) while taking a resolute turn with its intention. These twelve new songs retain the honesty and immediacy of Little Hurricane’s earlier work. Yet they also incorporate new timbres and a broader emotional scope, changes that underscore the band’s desire to transcend its dirty blues roots and connect with a wider range of music lovers.

This evolution is especially evident on ‘OTL’ , a love song woven from understated keyboards and intertwined vocals. Married in summer 2016, the creative partners elected to openly share their happiness with listeners for the first time. Speaking about the track CC says: “OTL is a song that is particularly meaningful to us and we wanted a video to capture the intensity we felt when we wrote the song. We thought it was important to juxtapose the intimate lyrics with darker imagery. I had this concept of “love at the end of the world,” where things are falling apart all around us, but we still find these moments of joy in the travesty. This was our second time working with Jordan Albertsen, and we felt he was able to translate our idea into a story line that is both heartfelt and tragic all at once.” 

To hear more about their journey, tune in to their latest album ‘Same Sun Same Moon’ out April 14th via Mascot Label Group.
