Review: False Heads – ‘Less Is Better EP’



When it comes to modern rock, no band is more exciting than False Heads. The East London three piece of Luke Griffiths, Jake Elliott and Barney Nash have been the name on everyone’s lips for a while now, notching up hits, trashing venues, and earning praise from music legends like the one and only Iggy Pop and former Ramones manager Danny Fields. With the release of ‘Gutter Press’, the band brought their unique brand of grunge-tainted punk-rock to new heights, pushing the boundaries with wild energy and manic guitar riffs that simply refuse to relent. Now, with their new EP, the band have proved once and for all that they’re the dirty future of music.


Built on the same wild passion and unrelenting energy that made their previous releases so infectious, ‘Less Is Better’ is a four-track collection that perfectly illustrates the band’s vision, focus, and talent. Previously released single, ‘Retina’ and ‘Yellow’ feature prominently on the new EP, bringing it to boil and setting an unrelenting tone for the release. Heavy, grunge-infused, and with stadium-sized choruses, they’re modern anthems that have become trademarks of the band. Two new tracks appear alongside them in the form of ‘Help Yourself’ and ‘Wrap Up’, two tracks that close the release with a flurry of hard-hitting drums, grit-laden riffs, and immutable vocals.



Short though it might be, ‘Less Is Better’ is an EP that manages to capture the raw essence of the band and their lauded live show. It’s an EP that celebrates their passion and talent, putting the band firmly in the spotlight where they belong.


Score: 9/10
