Atlanta-based indie rock band The Head are about to embark on a huge tour in support of their new album Space. The album was released in early August on DollarShade Records and weighs in at a hefty 13 songs. Their tour includes stops all around the US early this fall, with a second leg in the UK starting in November. The band will be coming through Charleston early in the tour (9/30) to play at The Royal American with Charleston acts Whitehall and Argot.
The tracks on Space are half upbeat, guitar driven songs with garage pop undertones, and the other half slower, ballad-type songs with acoustic feels and vocals at the forefront. On tracks like “Broken Scheme” and “You” the vocals are semi-reminiscent of Morissey’s drone on old Smiths records (minus the British accent), and at other times we get more of a punk-rock snarl that makes me wonder why I ever thought the vocals reminded me of Morrissey. If nothing else this shows the versatility of The Head’s sound and will hopefully prompt you to listen to Space for yourself and form your own opinions. Luckily you can do that in this very article, because I’ve got a Spotify stream of their album below.
The Head also led the album’s release with music videos for three singles: “Zoey”, “Tea Colored Radio”, and “Lillies”, and I’ve included all three of those videos below the Spotify stream. At the very bottom you’ll find the full tour poster. Get on out to Royal this Saturday to see them live!
