It’s always well cool being able to promote new bands, however when said bands come from just a train ride away then it becomes the coolest thing in the world. Double Headed Jester are a brand new five piece from Canvey Island and this is their debut single Lilly’s Getting Lippy, and from being closely related to another Canvey favourite in The Ends, I have high hopes for these guys.
Lilly’s Getting Lippy sees Double Headed Jester project a sound that is brooding with charm, laced with smooth grooves and bolstered strongly by heavy hitting riffs, and all of it comes together to create one hell of an exciting debut. This track is catchy, badass and I can’t get enough of it. Accompanying b-side Rendezvous Nights heads a little down the heavier route with a constant focus on letting the riffs go wild, allowing the closer half of this debut single to go down with one last hurrah.
Both tracks are brilliant and definitely gives Double Headed Jester a straight starting point in what’s sure to be a very promising career. Their sound offers a whole bunch of options for them to take and these two songs just give us a brief introduction of how diverse their material could become. Awesome awesome single.
