Having changed their name from simply Small Words to Patrick McCallion’s Small Words in order to highlight the growing profile of their principle songwriter (the eponymous McCallion), this 5 piece from Yorkshire are making the occasion with the release of free download ‘A Little Light Entertainment’.
With the feel of a speedy, chugging folk song but played on electric guitar, it’s a track that doesn’t lack for quality or enthusiasm. It whips by at a nippy clip, done and dusted in under three minutes with its point well made.
The press release calls it a ‘message song’, about the pros and cons of the social media revolution, but it doesn’t get weighed down by the subject matter, taking a light hearted swipe at our internet habits while also acknowledging the good points. But it also works as a good song if you ignore all that and just enjoy the feel.
