Tiny Little Houses' latest single Milo Tin is uniquely Australian in the best way
Tiny Little Houses's new single Milo Tin is quirky songwriting at its best.
"I don't want to be a cultural cringe," sings Caleb Karvountzis on Tiny Little Houses' latest single Milo Tin and hopefully the first song off their upcoming album. And it's this quirky, self-aware songwriting that captures you. It's a little like Courtney Barnett except not so wry but rather rooted in an uncertainty of the world and relationships. Indeed, it's their songwriting with cultural reference points like Milo tins, Vegemite jars and hating the suburbs that makes Milo Tin stand out. It's distinctly Australian, something most Australian artists wouldn't want to front up to and perhaps why Karvountzis mentions not wanting to be a cultural cringe. But overall it's a beautiful crooner of a song bemoaning relationships never quite making sense (haven't we all had one or two too many) through some well-placed lyricism.
