TVD Premiere: Little Person, “I’m Happy to
Be With You”

Mellow NYC-based quartet Little Person specialize in a whimsical blend of sedated indie rock that falls somewhere between Courtney Barnett and The Shins.

Today, we have the pleasure of premiering the twin brother fronted band’s newest single “I’m Happy to Be With You.” It’s a deceptively simple number that is brimming with melodic sophistication and evocative imagery. “We dance through the living room,” sings Nicky Weinbach while brother Max joins in harmony, “Dreaming like stars who have conquered the moon.” Before long the simple arrangement has been caked in tape echo and wind sound effects, demanding a second listen to fully absorb the loveliness that proceeds the decay.

Both Weinbach brothers started their careers in musical theater, still putting on a throwback-style variety show from time to time, but it was their mutual love of classic 1960s pop records that led them down their current path. “I’m Happy to Be With You” is the follow-up single to their acclaimed EP “I Feel Fine.”

The band’s Nicky Weinbach details, “At the time of the song’s inception, Max had left to teach English in Paris for a year while I stayed at home in Los Angeles, having forfeited the opportunity to attend acting school, also in Paris, due to financial constraints. When I dropped Max off at the airport and said goodbye for the year, the idea for ‘I’m Happy to Be With You’ was born. It’s perfect for the pre-Thanksgiving season and might speak especially to those who are away from their families for the holidays.”
