Head of Light Entertainment. New Boy.

With Covid kicking our sense of time into touch, it’s astonishing to find that it’s been almost two years since we’ve had new music from local art funksters Head of Light Entertainment.   Seemingly have spent the time swotting up on art/funk greats, and in particular The Futureheads and Maximo Park, New Boy sees the Entertainers head into more instantly accessible ground than previous releases; their love for new wave guitars and interesting time changes still very much intact, but now with a definite chart-friendly melody line and lyric sheet.  Full of lovely vocal layering’s, and choppy dance-floor ready guitars and synths, New Boy is an interesting progression from a band already known for pushing the art/new wave sound into interesting spaces.  Sounding refreshed and packed with new ideas, this is a great way to remerge from two years of swotting.
