You might not know much about Sydney’s Little May--not yet, anyway-- but hopefully by now their breakout single “Hide” has at least made its way into your eardrums. The Aussie trio, which is comprised of Hannah Field, Liz Drummond, and Annie Hamilton, have officially blown up the blogosphere with the track, amassing over 200,000 plays on Soundcloud and shooting straight to the top on Hype Machine. Borrowing musical bits and pieces from folk stars like Fleetwood Mac, as well as groups like Animal Collective and Local Natives, “Hide” is a hauntingly beautiful conglomeration of all of their influences, and we can’t get enough.Fortunately there’s plenty more where this came from, because the girls are gearing up to release an EP early this year. But even before that happens, we have the exclusive premiere of the single’s new video below. A bewitching song like this one deserves an equally mysterious video--and according to the band, they wanted the visual component to relate to the dark soundscape. Not to mention, showcase a “powerful visual expression of female energy, in which several female protagonists leave their unhealthy relationships,” they told us. Filmed over a weekend in New South Wales, this clip was a total group effort--down to the dresses, which were hand-dyed by Hamilton--and it all shows in this supernaturally gorgeous result. Watch the premiere below, and get to know Little May here! They’re going to be around a while.
