Little Eye – The Interview
Little Eye are Allan, Euan, Marcus and Jay. They were formed initially in 2008 by lead singer Allan but established as the current line up in 2013. They have a couple of accolades under their belt – Young Scot Unsigned Act Of The Year 2012 and Clyde One In Demand’s 2009 winners of ‘Band Of The Year Award’. They released their first album ‘Fighting The Future’ in June 2014 after releasing the single of the same name in April 2014, which received postiive reviews on the iTunes Alternative Chart. In 2014 they were invited to open the main stage at the Isle Of Wight festival alongside established artists such as the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, The Waterboys, The Specials, Nina Nesbitt, John Newman and The 1975. In 2014 they also supported iconic band Blondie at the O2 ABC in Glasgow.
Little Eye toured in mainland Europe last year, and made it into the charts in Italy with their song ‘Something Out Of Nothing’ (it has had over 3 million streams on SoundCloud).They are currently signed to an Italian label and that track ‘Contagious‘ is getting national radio airplay. ‘Something Out Of Nothing’ was played on their MTV Rock channel, and reached number 8 in the top ten rock songs in Italy.
They released ‘Contagious’ on Halloween 2016 and I recommend checking out the accompanying intriguing and slightly disturbing video! It reached number 1 in the Virgin radio chart in Italy with CDF Records, and number 14 in the Italian airplay rock charts.
I interviewed the band recently (minus Marcus the bassist) and it was a great interview with a very down to earth, fun and friendly band. I had the pleasure of seeing them live towards the end of 2016 at their headline show at Electric Circus in Edinburgh, and hope to see them again sometime soon.
They are a dynamic and polished band who know how to put on a fantastic show with a charismatic frontman in Allan. I highly recommend checking them out live. Click on the link to watch the band discuss touring, acting and plans for 2017 etc…….
Thanks to Allan, Jay and Euan for an entertaining interview, great to see you all. Marcus sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet! Look out for this fantastic band bringing out sone new tunes this year
