Nothingheads, a post-punk band from London, have announced the release of their debut EP, “Sunlit Uplands”, scheduled for early June via Just Step Sideways Records. Ahead of the EP, the group will unveil their first single, “Rat,” on 21st April. This single follows last year’s release, “3000 Years in Showbusiness”.

Comprised of Rob Fairey (guitar, vocals), Matt Holt (bass), and Ed Simpson (guitar), Nothingheads formed in 2020. The trio recorded their EP under the production of Wayne Adams at Bear Bites Horse studios. Just Step Sideways Records will make the full EP available on a 10-inch format.

If you listen well, you can definitely hear a big PiL influence.

The band shared their thoughts on the accompanying music video: “The video delves into the life of a character consumed by conspiracy and paranoia, making frantic movements at every turn and attempting to connect non-existent dots, yet unable to piece everything together.”

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
