HeadShy share new song to celebrate the release of "La Belle Epoque!"

The mighty HeadShy released their debut triple-EP La Belle Epoque last Tuesday and celebrated with an amazing Record Release Show at The Scottish Rite Theater, Saturday night. Since we all couldn’t be there, we’re doing our own form of celebrating, by sharing their new single for stream or download. “The Light That Guides The Blind” is the first track on the third EP, _The Base Chord.” We were all convinced it was Spiritualized, before we found it was our very own HeadShy. Enjoy!

Currently Spinning: HeadShy

Imagine if Tom from ’500 Days of Summer’ had grown up in the aughts instead of the 80s, and had missed the boat on “sad British pop music.” Instead, HeadShy might be his favorite band.

HeadShy hail from (Keep) Austin (Weird), Texas, having formed by members of influential psych-pop group 7% Solution. With their January 14 release coming up, the group has strangely delved into the world of perfumery, making heady connections between musical notes and the notes found in complex scents. So what’s the thinking man’s nu-goth posterband to do? Split their debut into three separate EPs that each have their own musical “scent” – The Head Chord, The Heart Chord, and The Base Chord. And the three releases will also be available as a box set that, appropriately, contains three different bottles of perfume. Sounds like a good deal to us.

Their first single ‘Coma’ is a somber, minor key love dirge that imagines a Sleeping Beauty happily-ever-after gone wrong. Lead singer Lisa Lipkin offers up noir Amy Winehouse vocals as she sings forlornly of drifting silently to sleep and getting stuck that way. The sparse drums and grooving bass are so laid back as to be behind the beat, giving the tune the sluggish, dream-like feel it requires. And of course there’s some spooky keys to complete the ensemble. Listen below:
