Southend punks The Horse Heads share new single ‘UR BOI’

A straight-talking guitar tune that spotlights the joy and that comes from submitting to your true feelings for someone, Essex-based four piece The Horse Heads have shared their latest single ‘UR BOI’. Released via indie label Cool Thing Records, the track showcases the band’s softer side, but still manages to retain their cacophonous, gritty punk spirit.

Formed of Ronaldo Rodriguez, Brad Sadler, Elias Emin, George Welch and George Young, The Horse Heads write tracks about the simultaneously charming and mundane nature of the everyday experience, channelling these feelings into raucous, energetic punk anthems. Championed by the likes of Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music as well as Radio X’s John Kennedy, the band combine their love of both punk and hip hop to create their loud, cathartic guitar tunes.

Whilst their pervious single ‘Bulldozer’ – a visceral take down of the people who “mistake kindness for weakness” – was full of raging riffs and thumping beats, on ‘UR BOI’ the band opt for cathartic admissions of love and infatuation over fuzzed up riffs and commanding beats. There’s even room for a Spice Girls reference too! “[This is] one of many love songs arranged by us, a lyrically beautiful pop song that describes how we feel love,” the band explain about the new single. “Sometimes, love songs are more political than anything else.”

The track is accompanied by a monochrome video, directed and edited by Jordan Noon, which shows the band cutting loose and performing in a studio.
