Tiny Little Houses don't want to be like Richard Cory

Radio13

Ivy League Records is elated to announce the return of beloved Melbourne outfit Tiny Little Houses with their powerful new single, "Richard Cory" - out everywhere now. 

After a two-and-a-half-year hiatus, "Richard Cory" marks a colossal return for the four-piece; inspired by the classic poem of the same title, the song is an emotional force, complete with heart-wrenching lyrics, surging guitars and of course, lead singer Caleb Karvountzis’s distinct vocals. 

Of the track, frontman Caleb Karvountzis says:

“Richard Cory" is a reimagining of a far better poem by Edwin Arlington Robinson. The first time I read it as a teenager I was completely stunned and knew one day I would try to work a song around its theme. While modernising some of the setting and language, I've tried my best to do the original poem justice, with its status themes still being relevant today. I actually had no idea the poem also inspired a Simon & Garfunkel song until our record label pointed it out.”

Remarkably the themes of the poem – originally written in 1897, then reimagined by Simon & Garfunkel in 1966 – continue to remain relevant today.
