Birdhead

Intense dentist-drill synths and sharp, cyclical guitar patterns make out with perky motorik drums and probing bass to produce a prog/post-punk metronomic groove rock thing with plenty of intensity. They are reminiscent of Nought, Public Service Broadcasting or Plank! with some unhinged, sparse, yelpy vocals. Krautrock reborn with balls.


Last year saw the release of their debut album, Pleasure Centre, which drew critical acclaim from many areas of the press and made it on to Vic Galloway’s top albums of 2013 list. The band completed a Scottish tour in November 2013 and have already commenced work on their second album. 2014 promises to be a huge year for the lads with many dates in the calendar including showcasing at Wide Days and a first assault on London.
