A Wishful Thing
PUT THIS IN YOUR DEN for a wonderfully written, complex EP from the grungy, alt-rock band Broken Head. With a wall of sound melding into infectious hooks, you'll be spinning this one on repeat. FFO: Catherine Wheel, Basement, Sunny Day Real Estate
Available on transparent blue EP, limited to 200
On “A Wishful Thing”, Broken Head is joined by new team members: drummer Evan White and studio producer, Trevor Reilly. The two help to bring out even more rhythm and dynamic from Broken Head’s already infectious choruses and melodies. On “A Wishful Thing”, Broken Head continue to shine in their ’90s alternative-rock sonic influences from Catherine Wheel, Swervedriver, etc. Rob and Alessio’s dual vocals continue to harmonize through the tracks, backed by their well-studied guitar tones, creating the perfect rhythms to get stuck in your head.
Producer Trevor Reilly allows the band to perform their sound well, tracking a more pristine and less polished recording. And while only four tracks, “A Wishful Thing” comes in at nearly 20 minutes. Broken Head is confident and comfortable in these songs, and as a listener, these minutes easily pass by and instantly begin to repeat.
