Rampton Prom return with new UK Bassline influenced single ‘Little Things’, out now on Promulous Hits
Closing 2020 with the release of their debut single ‘Too Baby’ (which was championed by BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq), emerging trio Rampton Prom now return to deliver their next piece of beat-driven alt-pop. ‘Little Things’ is out now through their own Promulous Hits label.
Exploring a UK Bassline sound, ‘Little Things’ sees the outfit unveil a wonderfully diverse and dexterous release. Filled with engaging production and tender lyrics, the group are looking to inject a much-needed dose of flair into the fledgling alt-pop scene as their latest self-produced effort manages to create a familiar yet distinct sound throughout.
As a call to those who are missing nightlife since the coronavirus lockdown first came into effect, ‘Little Things’ serves as a reminder of those heady days on the dancefloor and fills us with high expectations of where they will end up later this year.
Speaking about the new offering, their singer Gina says, “I guess lyrically I was exploring how the good and bad sides of everything spin around together and how my past is always catching on my heels. It’s for those needing some help shrinking the mountains back down to molehills. I feel like we went somewhere else the night we wrote ‘Little Things’ and I still get excited when I listen back. I hope that element of escapism comes across”
Rampton Prom is made up of Jonny (Bubs), Ryan (Breeze) and Gina (Queen G). The trio keep a tight grip on how the project sounds and is presented, maintaining that their close friendship acts as the central pillar of the Promniverse.
Taking influence from contemporary pop and US hip hop, Rampton Prom’s sound is a unique mix of choppy beats, poetic lyricism and quirky analogue arrangements. Gina’s narrative comes out almost too fast at times, exploring attempts at finding comfort in an increasingly polarised modern world. Her scrambled brain falls into place over Jonny and Ryan’s bromantic, energetic production.
