“Little Tybee is a group that is really hard to put your finger on stylistically, and that’s the way we like it“-Filter
A quick search of Atlanta-based act Little Tybee will render a plethora of glowing reviews, all seemingly strung together by one recurring keyword — “mini-orchestra.” While the core of the group is comprised of only 5 members, the term is truly fitting — their last LP, Humorous To Bees, was the product of some 14 total musicians. Released in April 2011, Humorous To Bees showcased a fully-fleshed incarnation of the emerging potential demonstrated on the band’s 2009 debut effort, Building A Bomb. Little Tybee has been relentlessly touring, honing their live show and building a strong fanbase.
As the name implies, Little Tybee hail from coastal Georgia, and have a solid following throughout the lowcountry. While their sound is a bit too eclectic to classify, they’ve been compared to such bands as Grizzly Bear, Dr. Dog, Fleet Foxes, Andrew Bird, Sufjan Stevens and The Morning Benders. They’ve been mainstays of SXSW since 2011, and have toured with such acts as Kishi Bashi, Sondre Lerche, GIVERS, Man Man, Reptar and The Love Language.
Little Tybee is currently working on their next album, tentatively titled For Distant Viewing. Make sure to catch them performing live at the Stopover!
