Newcastle’s dreamy masters of magical melodies Headclouds have returned with the second track to be taken from their upcoming EP, Seen It Before. The second release from the five piece follows up their stunning debut, Flowers, which saw the band receive airplay and support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio; making themselves a definite one to watch over the coming months.
Seen It Before proves them certainly deserving of the rapidly growing support they are receiving. It’s blissful lo-fi, shimmering sound is slightly more upbeat than their prior release; yet still just as heavenly. Headclouds have taken that jangly guitar sound which so many bands are using and given it their own twist. Stepping away from the genericness of current indie pop and creating a sound which works for all moods, these five are pure delight packed into a pop band; certainly one of my favourite bands I’ve come across in the past few months.
