London’s Earhart have returned with their infectious ‘An Incubator To Grow My Head In’. Garnering acclaim throughout the online tastemaker community with their first few releases, the band’s alt-rock influences immediately come to the fore in this newest effort with a series of moody riffs and gritty vocals drawing comparisons to the likes of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
‘An Incubator To Grow My Head In’ is a tightly crafted piece of laid back delight. This track splodges through like a stoner indie number. It’s stripped back and refined to a potent dosage as acoustic guitar strums accompany a moody melody while Joe Tennant coolly coos and whispers the verses with a raspy toned nonchalant persona. The track builds becoming more chaotic for the chorus as the sharp guitars whine their way through punchy drums and grungy soundscapes. It’s easy going, sun glimmered sulkiness vibe is infectious as this four piece flesh out one impressive, rich, intense and explosively restrained number. I for one am really enjoying watching this band blossom, each track produces a new proficient and mature aspect to their glorious sound.
Discussing their latest release, frontman Joe Tennant stated: “It had been growing in the back of my mind for about a year before it really surfaced. Like persistent theme music it was always there. So getting it out was a hugely cathartic process. Putting those thoughts and ideas into song form was the only way to confess them. They say ‘art’ should be vulnerable, and this one is close to the bone, but I hope people can see the humour in it. If it doesn’t make parents sad you must be doing something wrong. Right”?
