Will And the people release head in The Sand EP

Will and The People strip back their disaffected alt-rock grooves for their live, lockdown EP Head in The Sand. The Brighton four-piece have always been unafraid of the chink in their armour, knowing that their vulnerabilities are as much a strength. In these uncertain times, these five acoustic tracks are both intimate and familiar. Opening with a cover of the Pixies’ “Where is My Mind?”, which the four-piece toy with until it gets almost a tropical tone to it, Will and The People have their finger on the pulse of people feeling cast adrift. “Loveblind” feels warm and welcome, and “Gigantic” rouses the spirits, but the offbeat “Head in The Sand” feels out of place with the jarring play-voice frontman Will Rendle adopts on what, otherwise, is a sanctuary of comforting sounds and textures.
