Giant Killers, the indie-pop duo comprising Jamie Wortley and Michael Brown, have finally unleashed their debut album, ‘Songs For The Small Places,’ after an almost three-decade wait. Originally recorded in the mid-90s during their stint with MCA Records, the album, which never saw the light of day back then, has now made its digital debut through Little Genius Recordings.

The band’s long-awaited release comes with a charitable twist, as at least £2 from each Bandcamp sale will be donated to the suicide prevention charity Campaign Against Living Miserably.

Known for their ’90s sound that still resonates today, Giant Killers’ melodic tunes are laced with gritty lyrics and a fusion of guitar sounds and old-school synth riffs. Having opened for Blur on their ‘Country House’ tour and toured with Dr. Robert (Blow Monkeys) and Nick Heyward, the band has remained active, playing at prestigious events like Glastonbury and Proms in the Park.

Expressing their hopes for the album’s belated success, the band stated, “What we’re hopeful for, after a long journey to bring them into the light, is that these songs will finally reach the ears of the discerning listener and be given a fair chance to be loved, or otherwise, on their artistic and creative merit.”

James McMahon, a chart-topping music podcast host and former features editor of NME, shared his enthusiasm, stating, “The world has been worse off this last quarter century by not having these deftly crafted indie gems in mass circulation.”

With ‘Songs For The Small Places,’ Giant Killers hope the rest of the world agrees with them on the universal and timeless themes explored in their long-awaited debut.
