The Little Bicycles debut album, Broken Hearts and Tired Legs, is full of energetic catchy melodies paired with Nadia Kean’s bittersweet reflective stories of young heartache, broken homes and innocence lost. Once you mix in Bryan’s dynamic danceable beat and Andrea’s melodic, flowing bass lines, and every song gets stuck in your head… there’s no filler in this album, no sir.
The little bicycles came together little by little, as a band and as a force of nature. The original members, guitarist and songwriter Nadia Kean and bassist Andrea Hendel met skating for the Lonestar Rollergirls. They started playing music together casually in between roller derby, work and too many other projects, but it didn’t take long before the meetings grew to be less informal and more directional. The two were focusing on finding a consistent sound when they found it with drummer Bryan Nelson. Together they soon decided to name their band after their favorite mode of transportation.
In our opinion,little bicycles have started peddling up the steep hill of indi rock, have kicked off their training wheels and are ready to get to the top…
