False Heads - 'Slease'

False Heads have been tipped as the future of rock n’ roll and new single ‘Slease’ continues to show why.

False Heads blend punk rock fury with grungey riffing superbly. Beginning with a Krist Novoselic inspired bass riff, the band then launch into the loud and crashing riffage that Nirvana would have been proud of. The band take advantage of the ‘quiet/loud’ formula and execute it perfectly without shunning the power of pop melodies.

The chorus is catchy and the ‘woo oo woo’ is infectious. Luke Griffiths’ vocals in the verse aren’t singing, more of a melodic grunt that gets you fired up. And his solo is fantastic. Starting with a high-pitched tremelo-picked screech, it goes into a weird bendy melody noise thing, whilst Jake Elliot and Barney Nash go hell for leather in the rhythm. Rock n’ roll, man!

‘Slease’ is the first single to be taken from their upcoming album. This is a great track, so we should be able to expect a great album from them.
