False Heads are a musical enigma, their progress over the past year or so has been second to none. Latest single release “Retina” has been long anticipated, it is an exciting time to be a fan of the London based band!
Their back catalogue dates back to 2015, between now and then numerous singles and EP’s have been released with “Retina” being the latest addition to an ever growing back catalogue. The track is dark, atmospheric and powerful. Obvious bass lines and a crashing drum beat emphasise the power of lead singer Luke Griffiths’ vocal.
The trio consist of Griffiths (vocals/guitar) and old school friends Jake Elliott (bass) and Barney Nash (drums). “Retina” makes sensational use of distorted guitar chords, clashing well with bass and drums to create a powerful sense of confident ability. The track could soundtrack a wild night out or the most frantic of getaways!

For fans of Black Sabbath, The Fall or even more modern favourites such as Royal Blood, False Heads are already destined to far greater things. Their live show takes the small venue by storm, often wonderfully chaotic whereby mosh pits and sing alongs are a given. They currently embark upon a UK tour, heading to cities such as Manchester, London and Nottingham’s Chameleon Arts Cafe for a very special gig alongside fellow Eudaemonia favourites Babe Punch and Brown Lion Zoo.
Iggy Pop is already a huge fan and for good reason! Beyond him, False Heads have amassed a strong list of fans ranging between the NME and Q Magazine to Radio 1 and Radio X. It is clear their sound is suited to a broad range of listeners, between indie and rock, metal and pop. Their broad sound is perhaps a unique selling point, though at the same time they still have so much individuality, False Heads are any music fans’ dream.
Before “Retina” came Latest EP ‘Gutter Press’ which in itself is remarkable, we see it as somewhat of a masterpiece. Tracks such as “Twentynothing” and “Thick Skin” make up the well supported EP, something which is now the backbone of any False Heads live set.
Nows the time to catch False Heads live, they’re gonna take this summers festival circuit by storm and then some! “Retina” is already a fine example of the wondrous talents the London band behold.
