Unflinching poetry set atop confrontational searing lead guitar riffs, thunderous, driving bass-lines and pummelling drums is the unmistakable sound of Headshrinkers. They were formed in 2019 built on a vision of capturing modern life within their music, Headshrinkers have been quick to create a name for themselves in their local music scene and beyond. Headshrinkers were named on This Feeling’s ‘Big in 2021′ list, as well as being Brum Radio’s band of the year in 2020.

Headshrinkers’ sound has been described as ‘incendiary Post-Punk laced with stunning poetic majesty’ by This Feeling. Their frantic, full-force live shows are the best way to experience the band. Frontman Garran Hickman’s captivating, visceral performances take the audience on a journey, as they are simultaneously blasted with Headshrinkers’ unrelenting brand of noise.

Following a packed 2021, which included the band recieiving backing from BBC 6 Music and Radio X, as well as performing at Isle of Wight Festival and in The Netherlands, Headshrinkers are working on the release of their debut EP, ‘Doorway Conversations’, scheduled for Summer 2022.

“Punk riffs and jangly guitars combine in an eclectic cacophony with stomping drums and pounding bass lines. The result is a full-force live show in which the entire band at times… steals the show.” Muziscene, review of their VESTROCK NL performance
