Squarehead Announce Album Details and Share Single

‘High Time’ indeed. It’s been 6 long years since Squarehead released their last album ‘Respect’. After releasing 3 records in 3 years – along with constant touring – the band took a much-needed mental health break. Although the guys were still rehearsing (and making the odd festival appearance here and there) they never considered what they were crafting for the last few years as a ‘comeback’ album. But here we are. ‘High Time’ finds the lads in a more mature mood compared to the album-a-year cycle they were caught up in before.

This collection of songs has been road-tested, and anything that didn’t feel like it belonged was scrapped over the course of lengthy recording sessions, with producer Lesley Keye (‘Respect’) once again at the helm. Another familiar face is keyboardist Ruadhan O’Meara of Magic Pockets/No Spill Blood, who lends his synthetic layering to the tracks. While the album reflects the personal growth of the band, the sound is still steeped in the alternative rock pop world from where they came.

Morning is a Beatlesesque slow build set in the hazy middle ground between the sleep and waking state. This netherworld is made all the more alluring by the presence of a new lover who is being pleaded with to join their partner back in half sleep. The song is an experiment with restraint, pace and lyrical economy that mirrors the experience of regaining consciousness.”

The band couldn’t be happier to be working with Strange Brew records on the release. Founder Gugai MacNamara has been a long-time champion of the band, and he gave Squarehead the drive to keep going during a tough stage. Times have changed, but it’s ‘High Time’ for another dip in the cooling waters of the Squarehead sound.
