Your personal guide down the rabbit hole, Little Coyote is the cheeky cosmic canine providing psychedelic journeys from the natural world to the astral plane, divulging stories of madness and adventure.

Emerging from the sands of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, alternative-pop-rockers Little Coyote have been stimulating senses since their first live show at Upstairs Beresford mid-2014. Combining heavy-hitting beats (Anto Dinh, drums) and funky lush resonance (Gareth Bussey, bass), with a vintage-feel 6-string twanging fluidity (Matt Coates, guitar) and powerful, rich poetics (Judd English, vocals/lyrics), Little Coyote has ripened into the unstoppable foot-stomping, head-bobbing enablers they are today.

Their 2016 single 'Neverending' combines a wailing and wandering volatility with a funky plangency, united by hat-heavy beats with a delightful abundance of cow bell and the psychedelic ramblings of a mighty raconteur.

Sample Songs


[Little Coyote’s debut EP Howl has] "a healthy dose of rock that has just about the perfect amount of attitude" - Ted Rogan, (The Equal Ground)

"Their debut music video [for Neverending] as “exactly like The Wizard of Oz only with more tattoos, face-paint and weird hats" - Write.Click.Cook.Listen

“The opening drumbeats lead into both soaring guitar play and the distinctive vocals of Judd English. The 'alt rock' swagger is notable as 'Neverending' builds into a fine rock number.” - Beehive Candy

“Their new song, “Neverending”, is the lead track on the band’s second EP scheduled for release early this year. Its slinky bass line will add some swagger to your step..but, so will everything else about this song. “ - East of 8th blog

“Vocalist Judd English has got such a compelling voice, and he’s supported beautifully by drummer Anto Dinh, bassist Gareth Bussey, and guitarist Matt Coates. There’s a rock sensibility here, but elements of funk and blues give it an exciting fresh flavour. It’s one of those tracks you put on and you want to hear again as soon as it’s over.” - Sounds of Oz
