Little Raven

Little Raven release new single "Magic Bullet" from forthcoming EP

If you want to get a little funky, Little Raven -- past winners of The Deli Nashville's Featured Artist poll -- have released a new single called "Magic Bullet" to spice up your week. The single has the makings of an indie funk classic: Keenan Payne pumping away on the bass, Kyle Edmonston keeping dance-friendly time on the drums, and Brad Owens filling in the spaces with some ear candy key riffs. Add Rafael Green making his guitar sing and serenading with his breathy vocals, and you've got a summer track fired straight out of the chamber towards your eardrums. "Magic Bullet" is the first single from Little Raven's forthcoming EP Let It Out, which drops this fall. Take a listen to "Magic Bullet" below. - Will Sisskind

   

Little Raven open the bill at The Cobra on 12.18

Genre-weavers Little Raven, who released their EP Black & Blue last year, will open the bill at The Cobra on December 18th. The quartet of Rafael Green, Keenan Keaton Payne, Kyle Edmonston, and Brad Owens pulled out all the stops to put their songs to tape last year, adding strings, horns, and mystical vocal overdubs to their jazz-rock jams. The recordings on Black & Blue capture not just their musical talent, but also the energy of their live performances; you can catch them on stage opening for Louisiana-based Alex Abel and NYC-based HER, kicking off a night of unapologetic rock-and-roll sure to make that Tuesday night an unforgettable one. Listen to Black & Blue below. - Will Sisskind
