Free to download from Bandcamp, ‘A Little Light Entertainment’ is the new single from the newly renamed Patrick McCallion’s Small Words. Available to celebrate their name change, the move marks Patrick McCallion as a true talent to watch.
A guitar pop tune with a rocky edge, it bears comparison to the satirical bent of Arctic Monkeys – particularly in light of the Halifax based songwriter’s accent. It’s an obvious comparison then, but one that stands up well – a mark of how good this track is if nothing else.
Overall though, this is upbeat, fun, and paced just right so as to not outstay its welcome. It breezes by in a frenzy, and an enjoyable one it is too.
