Hailed by international tastemakers as Australia’s breakout act of 2014, Liz Drummond, Hannah Field and Annie Hamilton, otherwise known as Little May, have quickly won over hearts far beyond home shores. 2014 saw the band garner over a million Soundcloud plays and two Hype Machine top spots and with strong support from Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton and Huw Stephens, 6Music and a record of the week at XFM for debut single Dust earlier this year, seeing Little May shaping up to be serious contenders for 2015.
One of The Guardian’s 2015 picks and a Sunday Times Breaking Act, Little May are gearing up for a return visit to the UK this Spring and will release a new single ‘Hide’ on 13th April 2015 (Island Records).

With heart-wrenching acoustic guitars beneath the slow, fervent bloom of Little May’s spellbinding harmonies, ‘Hide’ is an intoxicating follow-up to the otherworldly grace of debut single ‘Dust’. Both tracks are taken from the debut EP ‘Little May’ out now on Island Records.
