While the early aughts saw a fair share of bands mining post-punk records by the likes of Wire and Gang of Four for precious riffs and inspiration, none of those bands stood out as heirs to the coveted throne as clearly as The Futureheads.

The English quartet writes succinct songs that manage to throw the listener some bombastic, noisy curveballs in the space of just over two minutes. Buzzsaw guitars interweave with Beach Boys/barbershop-esque four-part harmonies and frantic, stop-on-a-dime arrangements. Chaotic but still clear, the Futureheads fuse together disparate influences into a sound that doesn't have its head stuck in the past or present.
