THREE years of lock-ins on Ireland’s West Coast and in the Highlands were captured in music on Little Mammoths’ debut album Phantom Dreams – and now they’re back with two live dates in Aviemore and Inverness.
The London-based band have announced The Old Bridge Inn, Aviemore, on Saturday, April 7 and The Tooth & Claw, Inverness, on Sunday, April 8.
Little Mammoths formed in 2014 and their music has gravitated towards the sound of Drive-by Truckers, The Hold Steady and Wilco.
Phantom Dreams was released on vinyl last spring, with raw energy prompting Texan legend Ray Wylie Hubbard to declare ‘If your ears dig gnawing on the gritty sounds from a young, dirty, cool rock band, I just found Little Mammoths who satisfy the craving…’.
The four-piece’s constant gigging results in straight sets in excess of four hours and has seen their rmusic heard alongside Mumford & Sons, Fat White Family and Bahamas and at international festivals including Wilderness, Loopallu, Belladrum and The Clonakilty Guitar Festival.
Little Mammoths released their second album Cargo For The Road with seven sets at Glastonbury last summer.
And they saw in 2018 in Glastonbury after being invited back to Pilton Working Men’s Club by Michael Eavis who joined them on stage for a song as a special guest.
This year they plan to tour Europe and work on album three.
