After a successful release of a handful of singles including “Let it Out” which reached #28 on the Billboard Canadian Alternative radio chart, and a Wu-Tang Clan approved cover of “Shimmy Shimmy Ya,” Mountain Head are ready to share their 6-track EP to be released on March 18.
The lead single off the EP is the title track, “Backseat.” It’s a blend of subversive pop-infused dance beats and groovy guitar riffs, disrupting the notions of rock music. The song beckons a contemplative state, and has a longing for some sort of order out of the vast vacuum that COVID-19 created around the world and especially amongst the artist community. This song is passive, and aims to put the listener in the backseat so they can take a breath and listen.
Exploring lessons from the natural world and our vast subconscious, Backseat reveals the unimagined possibilities held just beyond our learned humanity.
Mountain Head hopes the listener is able to find a bit of themselves in the album, and that they come on the journey with them, returning equipped with the tools to build the reality they want to inhabit, and not the one that’s just been handed to them.
