Newcastle Upon Tyne Alternative Post-Hardcore band ‘headcage’ continue their musical onslaught with their colossal new single ‘talk more’. With influences that lie within the early noughties Post-Hardcore, Emo & Metal brackets, ‘headcage’ present their contemporary interpretation of the styles and sounds that shaped their musical endeavours, pulling no punches in delivering bone crunching low-tuned riffs yet simultaneously offering very controlled and intensely melancholic lyrical content.
With a title of intent from the band their new single ‘talk more’ is a personal offering that highlights the scenario of a situation escalating far beyond the original intention and the realisation that just by simply ‘talking it out’ in the first place, things would never have ‘gone too far’.
Check out the official music video for ‘talk more’ below:
“Thematically the song talks about the importance of communication. I drew from past experiences in my personal life and formed lyrical ideas based around how important it is to talk through issues with the people around you. Despite deriving my lyrical ideas from personal experience, I wanted to write in a broader style, to lay out the lyrics in a way that those who listen to it could perhaps envision in their own way and derive their own meaning and message from them”. – Frontman Leyam Pattison.
‘talk more’ follows the bands recent single ‘shrink’ which garnered attention from BBC Radio 1’s Nels Hylton who made the single his ‘Track Of The Week’ on the Future Alternative Show, whilst also being broadcast by Alyx Holcombe on her BBC Radio 1 Introducing Rock Show. ‘headcage’ firmly cement themselves as ones to watch in both their regional and national Rock circuits and intend to keep building on the sharp momentum they have achieved.
