‘Beam Engine’ will be released on June 2nd ahead of Nothingheads’ new EP Sunlit Uplands full release on June 9th. It will be available on a 10’inch lathe cut via DIY label Just Step Sideways Records (Beige Banquet, Civil Partnership, Tommy Cossack).
Driven by metronomic drums, propulsive bass and cutting, fuzzy guitars, the track is a ferocious ode the dirty old river, father Thames, and the Great Stink that nearly wiped out London in the 1800’s. Recorded by Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse studios, it captures the frenetic energy and rawness of Nothingheads’ live show.
Formed in 2020, London powerhouse Nothingheads make dissonant grooves drawing influence from post punk, psych and doom. Rocks fall from the sky. The TV cuts out. A head bounces to songs covering Amazonian mines, modern super sewers and gambling in Gethsename. Since the reopening of live music in 2021, the band have become a mainstay on London’s DIY live music circuit, supporting the likes of Mclusky and Wine Lips, whilst also becoming regular headliners themselves with their noisy chaotic show. Nothingheads play a headline at the Shacklewell arms on June 17th to celebrate the release of Sunlit Uplands EP. Further London shows across the summer and full UK tour in the Autumn will be announced soon.
