Human Hair aren’t a new band. In fact, the group have existed – in one form or another – since 2008, losing and gaining members in the process.
But then, perhaps that’s why they just don’t care what you think. So many indie groups aim for high art, to craft something transgressive, transformative – Human Hair want to relish in the filth, in the grime.
Led by Jack Lenton, the band’s music – wild, thrashing post-punk with shades of The Fall or Nick Cave – is matched to lyrics which deal with the most wildly human emotions.
New album ‘My Life As A Beast And Lowly Form’ will be released on June 23rd (pre-order link), with lead single ‘Hungers’ already making an impact. A joyous filthy racket, you can check out the video for ‘Hungers’ below.
