Wonderful is the new single by Little Fish, "Oxford's best live band" (Nightshift, 2011). It was produced by Gaz Coombes in the cellar of his home in Oxford and will be released on 26th September through Estupendo Records. Wonderful will be available from 26th September on vinyl and as a download, featuring artwork by Blessing Force artist Valeska Hykel and a limited edition comic by Shipmate Title, who produced the band's latest video.
Little Fish is a three-piece band fronted by Juju ("My new Patti Smith" - Gaz Coombes), with Nez on drums and Ben on Hammond organ. Their debut album, 'Baffled and Beat', was recorded in LA and released on Custard Records in 2010. They toured with Supergrass, Spinerette, Juliette Lewis, Alice in Chains and Placebo. Debbie Harry saw them supporting Courtney Love and asked them to join Blondie for a UK tour. "Little Fish had the raw rock spark that doesn't depend on fame," proclaimed one New York Times review.
On their second record the band have decided to return to their Oxford roots. They left Custard and are making a truly DIY, locally sourced album. Wonderful is the first single from this album, a "perfect, understated and lush" (Alex James, In:Demand Radio) song about a time when Juju lost her voice for three years and was told she would never sing again.
