Sydney-based quartet Spookyland have shared a new single ‘Big Head’
The song, written when lead singer and songwriter, Marcus Gordon was just 16, wrangles profanity, twisted beauty and a fascination with life’s paradoxes into the service of highly personal, vividly distinctive poetry and compelling songcraft.
Gordon started writing songs when he was just 11, inspired by his two musically experienced older brothers, one of whom – Liam – is Spookyland’s guitarist.
“I went straight to writing, even before I could sing or play,” he explains. “Music was always around and I loved the feeling of creating something – even if that was just a noise – and I didn’t question it. I always wanted to do it.”
Spooky land’s debut album ,Beauty Already Beautiful, will be released May 6th On Play It Again Sam. While you wait, you can catch them here in the US as they hit up SXSW in Austin Texas ( We hope to catch them ) at the following shows:
