The Little Unsaid - Folk Electronica Live Act in Huddersfield

The Little Unsaid Short Info

The Little Unsaid is a music, film and poetry project stewed up in the badlands of West Yorkshire by multi-instrumentalist, producer and writer John Elliott. The music combines found sounds, beats and electronics with acoustic instrumentation, string and brass orchestration and John's haunting, androgynous vocals. Live, The Little Unsaid performs either as a full band, as a solo act (acoustic or with loops and electronics) or with string quartet.

2013’s album Dig For the Promise was co-produced and mixed by long-time Jonny Greenwood collaborator Graeme Stewart, and was crowd-funded by fans via funding platform Pledge Music. The album - made during John’s time living in London - explores and celebrates the frantic chaos of life in a metropolis, with all the beats and rhythms being made from sounds recorded out on the streets of London, such as train doors, traffic jams and fireworks. Tracks from the album have received repeated BBC 6 radio play and were hailed by renowned music blog Dots and Dashes as ‘one of the supposed genre’s grandest successes thus far.’

Summer 2014 saw the release of a five track EP combined with a limited edition book of poetry (now sold out) under the collective title A Filthy Hunger, exploring themes of distorted human connection in the modern world. The music was recorded with producer/engineer Brett Shaw (Daughter, Florence and the Machine) and features regular collaborators the Southfields String Quartet. This project was also crowd-funded by fans using Pledge Music pre-orders and exclusive offers such as limited edition artwork, remixes and private home concerts. A return to major festivals including Glastonbury, Larmer Tree and Secret Garden Party followed the release, with a successful full band tour of the UK in autumn 2014.

A new album is currently being recorded, due for release in Spring 2014, with an extensive full band tour of the UK beginning in March.
