I am a personal fan of the music from this So Cal. dirty blues duo named Little Hurricane. I’ve been promoting their music since the very beginning when I found out Anthony Catalano (Ex-Next in Line) began a new project. You may not appreciate the fondness I have for this group nor agree with me that they are one of finest most cutting edge indie artists in their genre. One thing is for certain I’m a sucker for a good hook in song and I feel that these two make beautiful music that anyone can enjoy. They may not fit the standard “guidelines” of typical IVM releases but don’t let that sway you from enjoying their music. This new music video for their track “OTL” is HEAVY in content and presentation. It’s very well done and suiting for this modern day love song. Did I tell you that Anthony and drummer CC just recently got married? That’s what this song is about, their enduring love for one another. I’m including the video below along with a few others including the Little Hurricane version of the Next in Line classic “Ocean’s Firing”. Check it out. The group’s third full length, “Same Sun Same Moon” releases worldwide on April 14th 2017.
