Longheads are a five piece psych rock band. Originally hailing from Norfolk the band who are Sam Mitchell (bass & vocals), Al Bishop (guitar), Nick Oakes (drums), Benjamin Reeve (guitar & vocals) and Mitchell Corrigan (synths) are now based in South London where a few of the members live in the guardianship scheme occupying various sites and spaces across London.
This is where they recorded their latest EP 'Mars doesn't feel like home anymore' which was received well by fans and critics alike.
The five tracks have been summed up perfectly by The Obelisk who say it’s, “31 minutes of space-faring lysergic adventures, immersive enough to ensnare tired, older acid freaks and fresh and progressive enough in its delivery to draw next-generation let’s-go-hiking-in-the-cosmos types as well.”
Longheads are building a name for themselves as an impressive live act and recently played their Desertfest debut, as well as supporting the likes of King Buffalo and Slift.
