Little Cub Still LifeNaming a debut album Still Life may seem suitable in the arty sense, but you will not find any of the songs on Little Cub’s first record rendering the inanimate qualities of fruit.

In fact, Still Life is lively in the most mercurial of ways. The British indie-electronica trio paint life into each song with unabashedly honest lyrics, and the synthesized, bassy beats – like water: sometimes choppy, sometimes rolling, always alluring – feature as a spirited asset to vocalist Dominic Gore’s almost deadpan lyrics, which call out things for what they really are. So tell us, Little Cub: “When do you tire of being right all the time?”

Still Life is out on limited edition gold vinyl, regular vinyl and CD on April 28 via Domino.
