There wasn’t many things to regret about HWCH this year but missing Squarehead certainly was one. Dublin 3 piece, Squarehead are one of those groups on everyone’s lips recently and it seems I’m the last to discover things sometimes. After a quick listen it is easy to see why they have people’s tongues wagging.
Their jangly often meandering indie pop is exemplary, with touches of 60′s psychedelia, obvious Beach Boys overtones with an added dose of distortion making it not to dissimilar to much-lauded (on here) Thomas Sanders side-project, Tap Tap. They currently have a track out on the Popical Island compilation and a 7″ single and with live shows coming thick and fast it’s a top priority to rectify my mistake at HWCH.
They play the Workmans Club, Dublin on 19 November w/Sacred Animals & We Are Losers
