Little Quirks is an Aussie band from Gosford, NSW.

The band members are Abbey Toole (lead vocals, guitar), Jaymi Toole (lead vocals, mandolin), Mia Toole (vocals, drums) and Alex Toole (bass).

This is, of course, very much a family affair. Mia and Abbey are sisters, while Jaymi and Alex are their cousins.

Abbey, Jaymi and Mia have played together for years, with Alex a recent addition.

They've busked on the streets, played lots of small gigs and at farmers markets, along the way slowly attracting a following. They are also sometimes accompanied by their friend Jordan Rouse (electric guitar).

The current The Rain Is Coming multi-state tour runs through to March.

The Bloomfield Hall show attracted about 25 people. As the band took to the stage at around 8:30pm their energy was infectious.

The set included Life Wouldn't Be and Devil's Ivy. Abbey was the most active throughout the show, jumping around to try and get the crowd involved.

The audience sang along to the ballad Someone to Hold, which created a romantic atmosphere. It was a highlight.

Alongside original songs Little Quirks played a few covers, including Green Day's In the End.

This was an electric, exciting night of what you might describe as indie-folk. There was a really strong chemistry between all the band members.

I can't wait to see them again.
