Little Fireworks Brave The Darkess As They Wonder: Where Did The Light Go?

The London duo offer hope in trying times with their four-song debut EP.

Little Fireworks burst onto the radar with their passionate power and sophisticated style of their debut EP Where Did The Light Go? — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Featuring the previously released singles Brother, Vicious Tongue and Like Ghosts, the emotionally rich songs of Where Did The Light Go? find Little Fireworks — the London indie-rock duo of Scott Viney and Pierce Kavanagh — working to reignite the hope that’s very much needed in these trying times.

Viney and Kavanagh are two lifelong friends from London who have been writing music together — in different projects and across various roles — for more than seven years. Like many artists, the pandemic played a huge part in the demise of their previous project. Pierce went on as a solo artist under the name kav, while Scott focused his efforts becoming a full-time session musician. But they missed making music together. Enter Little Fireworks: A new musical tour de force.

How would you describe their sound? You could correctly tag them as sad boys, but that would do them a great injustice. Although their music — a fusion of synth-fuelled indie-rock, dream pop, shoegaze and more —  may seem sombre, hope is a constant, universal theme in their work, providing a much-needed flicker of light when all else is dark — aka a little firework.

Influenced by Biffy Clyro, Frightened Rabbit, The National and more, the duo share relatable emotions, expertly woven around heart-wrenching harmonies in an alchemic mix of loud and quiet. Their thought-provoking songs delve into heartbreak (although not always from the viewpoint of the wounded), mental health and our unpredictable and turbulent world. With their epic crescendos, honest sentiments and hair-raising melodies, they entrance audiences — both in their studio output and at their live gigs.
