Louder Than War favourites False Heads return with their first single of 2018, the blistering Retina.

Arriving on a bed of skeletal guitar, chunky bass and frenetic percussion, Retina is the first single of 2018 from the Iggy Pop-championed Essex three-piece False Heads. Building on the band’s already rich back catalogue, Retina is both understated and beautifully scuzzy, delivered with same snotty nihilism we’ve come to expect from a band who bridge the gap between indifferent and incendiary.

Arguably one of the most important bands making a racket in the UK at present, False Heads are visceral and uncompromising, qualities that are manifest across Retina’s three and a half minutes. Buzzsaw guitars wail across the top of a steadfast bassline, while snares and cymbals skitter across the tracks bottom end. A welcome return from the trio, you can stream the video for Retina below, and check out their current tour dates too.
