“The band is called Narrow Head. You probably haven’t heard of them yet. You will. Formed in 2013 by guitarist and vocalist Ryan Hughes, bass player Jay Chary, Houston’s guitarist and vocalist Jacob Duarte and drummer Carson Wilcox, Narrow Head has become a vehicle for its members to explore their interest in shoegaze and ’90s alternative rock. Yet their oldest member is just 21 years old.
Despite the relatively “dated” genre (shoegaze’s heyday was from the mid-to-late 1980s until the mid-’90s) and a glaringly thin list of contemporaries, Narrow Head possesses a very firm grasp on the musical style of their influences. In recent years, the aforementioned genres have seen a dramatic surge in interest following the reunions of seminal genre acts such as Failure, My Bloody Valentine and, most recently, Ride. But Hughes and Duarte attribute their interest to their background in hardcore music.” ‘Dallas Observer’
