It must be a pretty nice feeling having a song written about you, particularly one as lovely as Little Comets’ new track American Tuna. The band’s new song is loosely based on keyboard player Matt Saxon’s burgeoning across-the-pond relationship with his now fiancée.

Delivering a thoughtful melody amid the band’s trademark calypso-esque rhythms, it’s a pretty ditty that draws on horns, piano and lush guitars which the band explain “embraces the need for escapism in a world which is falling apart.” 

The video was shot in Sheffield’s university, although not on entirely legal terms, as singer Rob explains: “We couldn’t get permission to film using the paternosta lift at Sheffield University but as we had previous form there in crashing university lectures and playing songs, we decided to risk been thrown out again and went ahead anyway.

“The only time we got stopped was when a woman from one of the offices, which were on every floor, asked us what we were doing. Micky had provided everyone with cover stories so I told her that we were filming a video so I could propose to my girlfriend. She was really lovely and said it was a very romantic thing to do so she left us to get on with it.”
