Little Destroyer’s music is, like its band name, both intimate and powerful. Creating a sound that’s achingly bleak and infectiously upbeat, the trio has chosen to maintain key elements of Legs’ dark melodies and blend them with a more electronic pop. With two singles—“Bad Cell” and “Rattlesnakes”—currently in the public domain, the group is fast establishing a signature style based on shifts between aggressive energy and atmospheric, distorted synths.
“We’d all been talking about the kind of music that we wanted to make, but we couldn’t find anyone in Vancouver who had the technical ability to do it,” Sheldan says. “We wanted a crazy sound, or a crazy beat, and we couldn’t find anyone good enough in terms of production. Every time we made a cool song, it would sound like shit on a CD or the radio. Our new producer comes from a really hi-fi production role, and we were coming from a really lo-fi angle, and when we met in the middle we realized our new direction. Each camp drew the other towards a lo-fi/hi-fi hybrid.”Back to Artists
