Consisting of frontman Anthony “Tone” Catalano and drummer Celeste “C.C.” Spina, there’s no denying that Little Hurricane are picking up right where The White Stripes left off. The San Diego-based duo creates a minimalist blues sound within the classic aesthetic of an indie rock band. The duo met after Spina put an advertisement on Craigslist looking for like-minded musicians, and Catalano caught her attention when he mentioned his jazz-band high school days. The band’s bluesy style stems from both Santa Cruz (where Catalano was educated) and Chicago, where Spina associated learning her “breaking beats.” Together, they form a fierce tornado (or some might say, hurricane) of sound.
