Bury St Edmunds trio Gaffa Tape Sandy deliver a track with an important message wrapped up in their passionate brand of garage rock in Meat Head.
Ahead of a busy summer festival schedule which sees Kim, Catherine and Robin take in sets at Latitude, Truck and dates abroad in Germany and Iceland, the trio have released Meat Head which is aimed towards “reckless attitudes that exacerbate rape culture”.
Meat Head is an instant hit starting off with the pounding instrumentals which soon grows into their usual fun, raucous style. In a change to usual proceedings, Catherine takes centre stage with a powerful vocal performance, which is complimented in the chorus by Kim’s vicious howls making the listening experience an enjoyable and thoughtful one.
There’s no doubt that this is one of Gaffa Tape Sandy’s catchiest tracks to date and already aligns well with tracks like Pink Neck/Train Wreck and the frantic Beehive in their outstanding live performances.
Having featured in NME’S Essential 100 for 2018 and various dates up and down the UK this summer, there’s no stopping the musical juggernaut that are Gaffa Tape Sandy, a band who are well and truly showing their potential. And Meat Head proves it.
