Now Hear This: Squarehead

Squarehead are a band you should listen to. Having first come to my attention through the truly excellent Popical Island compilation (free stream HERE) earlier this year, I then caught them last week at the Love SCOOP, Hate Racism night in Sweeney Mongrels and they nailed it. They also did a nifty collaboration with Patrick Kelleher on the night which would be well worth another look if I could get my mitts on it. Alas, these tunes will have to suffice for the time being. Standing somewhere between surfer-sunshine pop and a languid Weezer these lads sound a million miles away from the homely environs of Rathmines, where they’re based, and are all the better for it.

You can see them live for yourself at this years Hard Working Class Heroes, which incidentally has an incredible line up.

Stream the studio version HERE or check out the acoustic version  below. Enjoy!
