“Sounds like California with a Brooklyn edge. It’s LoFi goodness that’s hard not to warm up to.”
– The New LoFi
“Meet New York’s Little Racer. They make some fantastic pop music… like Talking Heads if they cut their teeth in casino lounges.”
– Sippy Cup Everything
“Little racer are the latest band to sign to the, frankly spot-on, Young & Lost Club label…. Lo-Fi, fast paced, skittering surf sounds for the ADHD generation. Think Surfer Blood crossed with The Strokes.”
Little Racer is a four-piece from Brooklyn consisting of Elliot Michaud (vocals, guitar), Ish Nazmi (bass), Wade Michael (guitar), and Dave Tedeschi (Drums). Shortly after forming in 2010, their eponymous single Little Racer found it’s away across the ocean to the BBC and London imprint Young and Lost Club, who subsequently released the 7″ single The Town/Split for the Coast in late 2011. After a short visit to London to support the single, they returned to New York to write and record a follow up EP. With influences ranging from New Order to Cat Stevens, their ringing guitars and choruses will most definitely take you away from it all, even if only for 24 minutes.
