Indianhead Makes a Musical Baby
Combining Grunge and Southern Rock to put a fresh coat of paint on a musical classic.
Ahhhh, 2019. New year, new me, and, the best of all, new music! If this is your first time visiting Shutter 16’s website, welcome! If you’re familiar with us you know we have partnered with ReverbNation to bring you amazing, up and coming artists. With that being said, let me introduce you to your new favorite artist of 2019! If it’s the hard Southern rock kind of vibe that gets your speakers turned up to 22 then I have the trio for you!
Hailing from Baltimore, Maryland Indianhead is bringing their own punk mix into the music we loved from artists like old school Black Stone Cherry, Shinedown, and Theory of a Deadman. Consisting of vocalist/guitarist Grant Walker, bassist Ellis Tinsley, and drummer Chris Weal, this group has brought a refreshing mix to the southern rock genre.
With the release of their self titled EP on March 24th, 2018, Indianhead has been out touring throughout the US bringing over fifteen years of collaborated music and skills to anyone and everyone who will listen. Now, I know what you’re thinking. It’s just a four-song EP, it’s not that serious. Well, my friend that is where you are sadly mistaken. First off, let’s talk about the album artwork. We have a classic black and white cover with a group of boys out doing what boys do. Mischievous shit. I mean, I don’t know about you guys, but I try my best to keep my guillotine’s out of reach of kids but what can you do.
Let’s move onto the first track. “Carry The Weight”. This debut track was recently paired with a music video, which of course we will link below. The song itself is very Southern rock if I do say so myself, and you can totally hear bits of the Maryland punk that pop up now and again.
“Memphis At Midnight” brings out all the old school vibes that we have been missing from our favorite bands mentioned above. You just feel like getting into your car and driving to Tennessee when you listen to this track. Walker really shows off his vocal and guitar abilities in this track.
Of the four tracks on the EP, the third song “Molly From The Hill” has to be my favorite. Just the grunge vibe that is admitted from the piece brings me back some very cherished memories of dark, local, venues filled with cigarette smoke.
I implore you to follow the links below and see for yourself how amazing this band is! Promise you’re not going to want to miss you on what Indianhead has to offer, of the glorious works that are sure to come in the next few months.
