Hand Drawn Dracula welcomes Toronto’s LITTLE GIRLS to the label! CULTS EP is set to be released September 6th 2011 on limited red vinyl and digital.
Little Girls began in January 2009 as the solo recording project of multi-instrumentalist Josh McIntyre who, at the time, was one-half of Toronto shoegaze duo Pirate/Rock. While Little Girls is a four-piece live experience, CULTS was performed and recorded by Josh. The music combines elements of new wave and post punk with layers of fuzz to create murky yet melodic walls of sound. Influences are drawn everywhere from both ’80s post-punk as well as hip hop production of the late J Dilla.
In less than two years, McIntyre has released five singles, two EPs and an LP, on a variety of independent labels, including Brooklyn-based Mexican Summer and Captured Tracks, and Sixteen Tambourines in Japan. Meanwhile, Little Girls has been touring as a four-piece band, completing a major North American tour in late 2009, followed by numerous forays into the U.S. and throughout Eastern Canada, including appearances at NXNE (Toronto), SXSW (Austin, TX) and CMJ (NYC).
