The Seven Inches // Little Things

With a lot of my friends already talking about upcoming festivals. I came across this video shot last summer at my favorite festival “Indietracks”. It’s by the lofi indie band The Seven Inches.

I’ve seen them playing an accoustic show in a riding steamtrain on my first Indietracks in 2008. Took some photos, although the circumstances weren’t that ideal. It was a steaming hot summer and I was cramped in this train being heavily pregnant at the time.

A couple of pics of the Girls Names gig last Friday. I didn’t bring my own camera, but took some pictures with friend Mel’s tiny camera after the gig. They played a couple of new songs, and there are three more songs in the works :-)
