https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCu2crWTIXc – ‘I Like That top’ HEAD ON [Athens, Greece] Landing in the UK for the first time – Head On combine the dark-tinged and atmospherically sparse elements of post punk bands like Joy Division and Public Image Limited with a grunged out heaviness akin to Soundgarden or Sonic Youth to create a sound which is equal parts melancholic guitar dissonance, snarling vocals and all-out, fists-in-the-air driving rock. Their debut album ‘Ubik’ is out now.

Formed in 2015, Martyrials have established themselves as one of the the most exciting new bands to come out of the English underground in many years.
