I like everything about British indie-rock trio Little Comets. I like the catchy beats, the theatrical enunciating of lead singer Robert Coles and I really like that their second single off of Life is Elsewhere is the domestic violence/rape-themed ballad "Violence Out Tonight." (If you haven't seen the powerful video yet, YouTube that shit, I'll wait.) It's not often that a totally male band will record a song about sexual assault that actually speaks to the issue in a thoughtful way (this ain't "Blurred Lines," that's for sure), let alone expects it to carry a record but if these guys are the start of something new---there's hope for us yet.
