Elton has added Little Hours to his Rocket Hour show playlist for this week on Beats 1 Radio.
The former Reg Dwight features the Donegal duo's single How Could I Love You? on the Apple radio station.
The band responded by writing the following on their Facebook page:
''Surreal to hear these incredibly kind words from Sir Elton John on his show on Beats 1 Radio yesterday. What a legend! Thank you!''
The guys--Killybegs natives John Doherty and Ryan McCloskey--have been touring the UK and Ireland and this summer released a lyric video for How Could I Love You?
The Irish Examiner has described Little Hours as “a sound that blends the earnestness of Coldplay and the shaggy blues-rock of Hozier.”
