Fantastic rock/pop band, very unique in the way that they bring an old school feel sounding similar to the Beatles crossed with the Foo Fighters and also another great band Oasis. This is what makes these guys stand out from the crowd. With outstanding lyrics combined with the best combination of musical instruments, they flow naturally which is very pleasing to the ears indeed. Vocally superb, Lyrically supreme and the music is spot on. Highly recommended for any music collection.
Headlong are a rock/post-Britpop band that are growing in and around the London live music scene, building a repertoire of vibrant, powerful, feel-good original songs, based around infectious hooks and a wry sense of humour, which have attracted attention from established artists and labels throughout the music industry.
The band dates back to when schoolmates Matthew Hart and Tom Monks, at just 16 years old, started jamming together around May 2012 as a hobby to pass time during their GCSE study leave. Once they realised the possible potential of their songs, they started to take themselves more seriously and began to work on establishing themselves as an act, recruiting Matt’s brother Jonathan Hart on bass, and eventually settling with Josh Cocksedge on drums.
Along the way we have amassed over 10,000 listens via our YouTube and SoundCloud pages and have performed at some of London’s hottest venues, including 93 Feet East, the Dublin Castle and the O2 Academy, with more yet to come and even American gigs in the pipeline – as well as attracting attention from several independent and even major record labels.
Taking inspiration from acts such as Oasis, Foo Fighters, New Radicals and Supergrass, Headlong focus on writing upbeat, feel-good, melodic songs, combined with the authenticity of rock music – ranging from borderline-satirical ballads to furious walls of sound.
We will be recording our album throughout 2015 for an early 2016 release, and here’s one of our most recent home demo’s, ‘Why You Gotta Be Like
