Video: Little Radar - "Spitfire"

For their first official music video, Austin quartet Little Radar stocked up on GoPro cameras and headed for the pool. The song "Spitfire" is from the band's debut album "Up in Arms."

Austin-based quartet Little Radar spans multiple genres interlacing indie rock licks with folk, layered with upbeat chord progressions, summery prog-psych, and textured melodies.

Upon releasing their EP Kill A Buffalo in January 2011, the band has built a reputation for being a must-see, must-watch emerging Austin act. Little Radar has shared the stage with local loves The Octopus Project and Driver Friendly, and has landed features on KUT’s Song of the Day (“Birds”), Laurie Gallardo’s Austin Music Minute, and David Brown’s Texas Music Matters.

Comprised of Sean Hale, Trevor Hale, Grant Himmler and Derek Woodruff, the band comes from very different backgrounds ranging from parent-taught guitar lessons outside art shows in Greenville, Texas in the early 90s to studying at Berklee College of Music. After ending up in Austin and running into each other by chance at various local shows around town, the guys decided to start making music, recording their first EP in a living room. Their debut album, Up in Arms (recorded and mixed by Marco Street of Trolley House Productions in Dallas, TX and mastered by Carl Saff in Chicago), was just released on April 29, 2012 at the Mohawk with support from Music Box Media and From the Mind of Adi.
