Little Girls began in January 2009 as the solo recording project of multi-instrumentalist Josh McIntyre who, at the time, was one-half of Toronto shoegaze duo Pirate/Rock. While Little Girls is a four-piece live experience, CULTS was performed and recorded by Josh. The music combines elements of new wave and post punk with layers of fuzz to create murky yet melodic walls of sound. Influences are drawn everywhere from both ’80s post-punk as well as hip hop production of the late J Dilla.
In less than two years, McIntyre has released five singles, two EPs and an LP, on a variety of independent labels, including Brooklyn-based Mexican Summer and Captured Tracks, and Sixteen Tambourines in Japan. Meanwhile, Little Girls has been touring as a four-piece band, completing a major North American tour in late 2009, followed by numerous forays into the U.S. and throughout Eastern Canada, including appearances at NXNE (Toronto), SXSW (Austin, TX) and CMJ (NYC).

Little Girls’ press exposure has included “Essential Tracks” honours in the Globe and Mail (Toronto) and “New Band of the Day” in the Guardian (U.K.), as well as a NOW Magazine cover and coverage in Dazed and Confused, Eye Weekly, Nylon and Fader, among many others.

“Sebastien Grainger (DFA’79, Sebastien Grainger & the Mountains) and Josh Reichmann (ex-Tangiers, Jewish Legend) create greasy, industrial disco, drizzled with danceable beats and carried by Grainger’s soulful howl and Reichmann’s rock-and-roll jangle.” – The Star
