I love the instrumental outtake. So cool and so dreamy.
Somewhere between the growl of PJ Harvey and simmering tension of The Velvet Underground sits Melbourne songwriter Little Wise with her return single ‘Want It All’
She calls herself Little Wise, but I think she’s a lot wise
Little Wise is destined for big things. Sophie Klein sings with the wisdom of an old soul
A rockin’ new tune!
An evocative slice of musical storytelling
That sultry stare and husky vocal swirling around the sharp and twanging guitar is bluesy perfection.
The delicate harmonies of Little Wise’s latest single ‘Under Water’ tell a lovely melancholy tale on their own, one that’s only enhanced by a beautiful film clip.
A stunning, raw take on rootsy folk and alternative country. The evocative songbird is on the rise.
Klein has such a tender and open hearted spark to her, that fans of Australian folk and country would be direly mistaken to overlook Little Wise.
It’s nothing short of breathtaking. Each little guitar lick that’s flawlessly placed between vocal phrases seems so at ease and cradles my calm... I think I’ve found my soundtrack.
Little Wise has a gorgeous voice with such an earthy, authentic quality.
If you’re a little wise yourself, you’ll catch them
[Sweet Rain Falling] has a subtle sound with beautiful harmonies and delicate feel . It’s full of colour with a softness and calm which is simply wonderful . It’s a real privilege to offer airtime to this music.
Klein takes a gypsy-like approach to making music, straying beyond the boundaries of folk and roots to incorporate elements of blues, soul and country
Her voice is entirely suited to these songs, with layers of wistfulness, melancholy and beauty, and she sings with a joy that is totally apparent from her expression, from the lighting up of her eyes to the smile spreading across her face.
The songstress may be small in stature but has big stories to tell and much musical wisdom to impart
Little Wise delivers a rare brand of indie folk music, a kind so beautiful that you want to keep listening to over and over, and it never becomes repetitive. You instantly fall in love with Sophie Klein’s voice.
