Emerging band Mountain Head is back with their new single “Shade”, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
“Shade” was written on the streets of Miami. Mountain Head landed in Miami the day the Wu Tang Clan shared their music across all of their platforms. A night on the city seemed like the proper thing to do. Somewhere between South Beach and Little Haiti one of the brothers started beatboxing and the other mouthing a melody. Laughing, they pulled out their phones and recorded a voice note. Upon returning to the studio Shade was born. The song is gritty, dangerous and full of vibe. It asks the question: Who you gonna call when you’re back up in it?
Mountain Head begins with the Hannah Brothers, and a mountain. The mysterious duo wandered through the wasteland and arrived at a mountain, which they scaled. At the top, they discovered a shaman who changed the brothers’ lives and way of thinking forever. Descending the mountain, they channeled Johnny Cash, Flavor Flav, and Billy Gibbons. Dressed in black denim, rocking solid gold grills and long beards, their eyes were obscured by heavy shadows from the brims of their black hats. The most startling change was their music, full of subterranean grooves, plump cavernous bass lines, and a jangly, grungy guitar. Their sound blends psych-rock, alt-rock, and elements of electro-pop and jangle pop into unique and potent sonic concoctions. Mountain Head’s goal is to travel to your city and steal your head by means of mesmerizing vocals and contagious melodies. They’re skull bandits, but polite ones, because after they steal your head, they give it back to you. According to Mountain Head, the only way to hold on to your head is to lose it.
