Car Boot Sale stumble back to the Noughties on their debut single ‘Headhouse’. With Razorlight-isms left, right, and centre, we’re reminisced back to a time where Noel Gallagher said Hip-Hop at Glastonbury was ‘wrong’ and low-rise jeans were a thing.
Just like a nicknack you’d find for two pound at a boot fair, the London based band’s debut single is familiar yet fascinating, offering an insight into an idolised adolescence which was never quite your own. Fronted by rising rapper Jaques Fugee, Car Boot Sale have built a self-proclaimed ‘soulful cut’ from reliable building blocks, contemplating the most urgent of their problems; unrequited love. With Post-Punk’s grip over contemporary guitar music, ‘Headhouse’s asos-model approachability makes it stand out in a crowd of abrasion and angst. Car Boot Sale offer an indie introspection which fathoms youthfulness and naivety much better than any odd time signature or half-spoken lyric ever could.
