Little Scout play an integral part within the Brisbane independent music community and wider Australian music community, with members previously performing live and on record for other established bands including but not limited to The John Steel Singers, Hungry Kids of Hungary, Parades, Edward Guglielmino and Skinny Jean. In 2011 they were selected to play the Big Sound conference - a key industry event in Australia.
Little Scout released single "Go Quietly" in June 2012, co-written with Scott Bromiley (The John Steel Singers) and engineered by drummer Miro Mackie. The song was mixed by American producer Lars Stalfors (The Mars Volta) who contacted the band after hearing them on Triple J unearthed radio. Carter Maness of New York blog RCRD LBL wrote "Marching along with loose floor toms, swelling guitar and sweet female harmonies, Aussie rockers Little Scout really succeed at the oft-attempted 'bringing garage rock to the beach' concept. "Go Quietly" is pure summer fun - a bit dreamy, a bit whimsical, a bit soaked."
