Origins is a recurring new music feature in which we offer artists the chance to explain the influences behind their latest single.

Thanks to their 2015 breakout debut, For the Company, indie rockers Little May made an impression far beyond their native Australia. They lined up festival slots at the likes of Bonnaroo and Splendour in the Grass, and shared the stage with Mumford and Sons and The National, whose own Aaron Dessner even served as producer on their LP.

Three years later, Little May have settled into their stardom, leaned more into alternative rock, and undergone an update in personnel following the departure of co-founder Annie Hamilton in 2017. All these changes helped shape this 2019 version of Little May, which went a long way to informing their upcoming sophomore album. Titled Blame My Body, it’s set for a May 3rd release through Dew Process/Universal Music Australia.

Following last year’s “Lover” single, the two-piece is today previewing the record with “Apples”. Glimmering, catchy guitars serve as a contrast to singer Liz Drummond’s melancholy musings, as Little May combine bits of ’90s alternative rock (think Liz Phair, Smashing Pumpkins) with more modern-day fuzzy dream pop (a lá Warpaint, Dum Dum Girls).

“I’m trying to find something to hold onto/ I’m running out of black ink, can you lend me some?” longs a desperate Drummond, who tells Consequence of Sound the song is about feeling stuck and the difficultly of understanding one’s place and purpose in the world.

I think I was listening to a lot of Smashing Pumpkins at the time, which is where I often go when I feel like I want to just hear something familiar and nostalgic. That may have influenced the song in some way.
