THE FUTUREHEADS

I sort of lost track of this UK band for a few years because I didn’t they could replicate or have progressed since their debut 2004 Self Titled Album, which is absolutely full of gem after gem (one below). Fast forward a few years and a few missed albums on my part and in my opinion it’s not as good as the 2004 album, but hell The Chaos is pretty impressive. What I like about this band is that they’re fast, the bass and guitar parts are SUPER catchy and I always liked their ability to harmonize in a Clash sort of way. Their current single, “Heartbeat Song” is catchy but I picked “Stop the Noise” as it sums up what they seem to do best. If you like bands like Art Brut, Rakes or even Wire check these tunes out.
