‘With the Head of a Beast’ represents a musically progressive step in HOAD’s song-writing. It embodies the evident and often tangible soundscape that characterised their last EP whilst introducing a potent fusion of percussive, compelling rhythms that nurture the tender melody. This, in perfect association with thoughtfully unaffected lyrics and a swelling tide of dedication, yields a sound that manages to be both soulful and distinctively authentic. ‘With the Head of a Beast’ marks a clear indication between ‘Awake and Carry on’ a record that was born out of two song-writers from other bands collaborating. Their current work personifies this feeling of a confident song-writing approach teamed with a dedicated editing process which has refined their sound to the current tonal counter-balance between driving percussive grooves and melodious vocal harmonies layered over rich instrumentation.
