Quite possibly the most exciting thing to come out of the town in the last three centuries, Trevor’s Head are almost literally putting Redhill on the map, before scrawling “Trevor’s Head Country” over the top; because that’s what Redhill is now - Trevor’s Head Country.
Joining forces in 2010 as a four-piece, before slimming down to a power trio by 2016, Trevor’s Head markedly circle in three distinct orbits; around stoner, punk and grunge respectively and independently. It’s a unique dynamic which produces a vibe quite unlike anybody else out there - either in the underground or above ground, nobody comes close sonicly. It’s an often quite ethereal experience, especially given the shared vocal duties between all three members, each tapping into their own individualised style and called upon when needed.
This setup allows for an intensely diverse pool of sound on any one of their releases, perhaps most notably on 2018’s Soma Holiday [APF009]. Only on a Trevor’s Head album could you transition between the old school, dirty punk feel of ‘Billion Dolar Fart’ to the hauntingly beautiful ‘Ghost’. It’s a testament to the abilities of these three fine gents that they make it work.
Having gigged relentlessly, with high points of the road being shared stages with, among others, Radio Moscow, Greenleaf and Elephant Tree, as well as appearing at Desertfest London, It’s almost mouthwatering to imagine what they’ll try their hand at by the time another album hits.
