The Futureheads

Producer (group): Sire; Status: In Season

Take one listen to this Brit quartet — with its spastic guitars, Thames-deep accents, and garnished harmonies — and you’ll swear the Proclaimers have gone punk. That’s a frightening scenario, but Futureheads wisely keeps things short, sharp, and shocked on The Futureheads: ”Robot” sounds like a nursery rhyme as imagined by Wire, while ”Le Garage” goes from hymn to head-nodding anthem in just under two minutes. Yet another reason for us to think about moving overseas.
