Ouch My Face


Ouch My Face – Firehead

Listen to

Wow, this is such an aggressive song. Even without the lyrics – which threaten to beat you – this stuff could probably make your nose bleed.

Fittingly, the band responsible for this punk/funk gem is called Ouch My Face. Hailing from Melbourne, the three-piece distill rhythm and hostility into an energetic cocktail with the same reckless abandon that typified early Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Blood Brothers music. With the untamed shrill of vocalist Celeste Porter augmenting the fierce conviction of the bass groove and drums, Firehead is ferocious but accessible – a perfect slice of contemporary post-punk.

What’s most exciting is that they’ve managed to capture the near incomparable energy of their live shows on record. It’s definitely worth getting along to see these guys if you get the chance – they make it more than worth your while.

Firehead is lifted from their forthcoming EP, which should be a highlight of the new year if this song is any indication.

(As a side note, Porter also provided the impressive cover art for An Horse‘s equally impressive debut album. What a talented girl).
