Brooding band False Heads first formed in 2015 and have spent the years developing a cult following, drawn to their atmospheric songs, bursting with intensity. Now, they prepare to break the mainstream with their first full length record.

‘It’s All There But You’re Dreaming’ is the debut album from the grungy trio and is reminiscent of the masterpiece records from the late 90’s which married anthemic walls of distortion with dark introspection and angry political outbursts. Hailing from the outskirts of East London, False Heads formed in 2016. Behind the energy of their live shows, the trio quickly thrust themselves into punk-rock limelight, catching the attention of Punk’n’Roll legend Iggy Pop, ex Ramones manager Danny Fields and music tastemaker Rodney Bingenheimer. Having quickly graduated from playing empty rooms in London to supporting The Libertines on a sold-out tour, the buzz around the young band is undeniable. False Heads are Barney Nash (Vocals & Drums), Luke Griffiths (Vocals & Guitar) and Jake Elliott (Bass).

‘It’s All There But You’re Dreaming’ is released by independent label Lovers on Silver Vinyl LP, MP3 + CD and sees the troika show off their new material with a Brighton show in Latest Music Bar on Saturday 5th of April.

East London trio False Heads. Today I highlight the amazing new single, “Rabbit Hole,” off their upcoming debut full-length album, It’s All There But You’re Dreaming, out March 13th. We have been following the band for just about five years now and it has been so much fun to watch their rise into the punk-rock stratosphere.

The new song is just another taste of the ass-kicking music you can expect from a band that has zeroed in on the rock n’ roll bullseye painted by the many outstanding bands that came before them and destroys the target. These guys have taken the sound of the past and restructured that tried-and-true UK punk we all know and love to create music that signifies the best of what the genre has to offer in the new decade.

False Heads are Luke Griffiths (vocals/guitar), Jake Elliott (bass) and Barney Nash (drums), and I have said it a thousand times my friends… these guys are real deal rock n’ roll!

False Heads

False Head’s mean business, with their no-nonsense brand of politically charged punk-rock is perfectly paired with a love of huge riffs which has already attached the attention of legends such as Iggy Pop”. The scuzzed up, alt-rock 3-piece travelled extensively to promote their highly-anticipated ‘Less Is Better’ EP and now they’re back with an onslaught of activity. After sharing a stage with the likes of Queens Of The Stone Age and David Byrne, as well as picking up support and plays from BBC Radio 1 and Huw Stephens, they’ve been setting themselves up for even more domination, as they crash into 2019 with one of their most explosive tracks to date.

Their messages and views go hand-in-hand with the gnarly chaotic sound of Luke Griffiths’ pick-axe-to-the-ear riffs and raw growling vocals, Jake Elliot’s psychedelic-infused rumbling basslines and Barney Nash’s explosive powerhouse drumming.

Bringing their ferocity and energy in true False Heads style, ‘Slease’ ticks every single box in the world of post-punk rock. Raspy screams, a grinding bass hook, battering beats and a whole array of feedbacking, whiney, grunge guitar riffs that will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing on end from the get-go. The eerie foundations of the record are harnessed by the ever-anthemic chorus that features delicate underlying ‘ooo’s’ from Barney Nash, as well as a call and response that you just can’t help but sing along to. Fusing a frenzy of noise with gentle, intricate melodies is just one of the many aspects of False Heads’ signature sound, not to mention their ability to build up an entire song into a devastating, explosive racket of a drop.
