There’s more than a nod to the Arcade Fire on Headlights debut album ‘Kill Them With Kindness’ and that can only be a good thing. What’s even better is that songs like ‘Put Us Back Together’ sound so indestructible with enviable boy/girl reposts and a jamboree that floods the momentum with a river of sound. The Chicago (ish) outfit have a colourful history with stints in several other bands before finally arriving at their current incarnation. Probably helps that they toured with the likes of the Delgados who were masters at the staggered epic with all those melodic bumps and grinds. ‘Kill Them With Kindness’ is out now on Polyvinyl records and deserves to be on a shelf near you.
