‘Yellow’ by False Heads is straightforward British punk rock with a poppy, garage rock-influenced approach. According to the band this song was written in, “a storage container we rent out… pretty much everything comes out of there.” The group’s frontman cites a Christopher Hitchens story as his main lyrical inspiration. “I wanted to discuss my views on the impact of religion on society,” he said, “and the consequences of playing ignorance to reality.” These guys utilize a direct approach that preserves their punk rock ferocity. At the same time, the relative simplicity of their compositional framework leaves them space to work in poppier elements like the hooky vocal harmonies. This isn’t a new format, but these guys have a really goos handle on how to make it work. Check out ‘Yellow’ below!
