After 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 recently returned to deliver their next piece of beat-driven alt-pop, ‘Little Things’, and now return to unveil the track’s official visualiser.
Following the theme of what the band call the Promniverse, an alternate reality of tales that accompany their musical output, the visualiser for ‘Little Things’ continues this disconnected narrative of day-to-day existences with the latest instalment of their ongoing saga.
Speaking about the new visuals, the band said, “Rampton Prom beckons you into the Promniverse with this, the second in a series of interweaving visuals. This week’s episode features an unsuspecting Queen G experiencing a wave of emotions following a brutal chatroom dumping… Some things just aren’t meant to be.”
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.
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.
