Hands On Heads formed when three friends discovered a feral child in their treehouse on 13th Feburary 2005. They provided sanctuary for the wild boy and taught him a crude language based on mouthed sounds and stick tapping. This form of communication organically grew into the songs Hands On Heads perform today, the boy taking up a position behind the drums, his friends playing guitar, bass, organ and singing - a mixture of regression therapy and now pop!
Through performance, the friends hope to acclimatise the boy to society at large in a bid for his independence, they also endeavour to communicate the desire and despair held in each little animal's chest. Hands On Heads are not so much a band as they are an experiment in bridging kinship. They also love to bring the party!
