FIGUREHEAD Release Debut Single "BLIND", click to play

Figurehead appear live on 89.7 FM Twin Cities' Western Oz show, ahead of their debut EP launch and have a chat with Sandy. The lads played acoustic versions of Blue Tongues and No Sleep.
"Figurehead were something of a revelation. With an average of just 14 years of age, they certainly had a way with catchy, quirky and cool tuneage. Strong melodies with inventive structures were often complemented by nice outros, all the while performed in a manner that lies somewhere between laconic and enthusiastic. Their last song, No Sleep, sounded like something dreamt up by REM and Joe Jackson. Enter that thing in the WAM Song Of The Year already! Watch this space, keep an eye out, etc, etc." Bob Gordon The Music
