New Noise Magazine is fuzzed out thanks to the single “Bulma” by Narrow Head. The song is thick with guitar chords, creating progressions that scream out. The drums keep the pace moving, steady and never without multiple accented rhythms. The track feels at one with the sky above, giving a warm atmosphere that shines through the cloudier of days. Narrow Head are about to embark on tour, which starts tonight. Be sure to be singing “Bulma”

“Listen at a high volume. I hope to play this song on the moon one day.” – singer Jacob Duarte

Narrow Head maintains a prolific early history by releasing their first track of 2018, “Bulma”. The band, led by 23 year old Jacob Duarte, has steadily curated a catalog that could immediately be categorized as ‘heavy’. Upon closer listening, one might discover ethereal musicality pressed between mildly abrasive instrumentation in bursts which rarely exceed the four minute mark. 

“Bulma” is a single release from recording sessions intended to comprise their next full length LP. This song was recorded at the end of December 2017, and mixed in January 2018. Expedited for a west-coast tour and sent to the e-presses by Very Jazzed, “Bulma” is a glimpse of Narrow Head in process.

The band soon looks to follow up their LP Satisfaction, released in 2016 on Floodlight Records. The LP is the first true showcase of the talents of Narrow Head’s members. A confident pummeling of drums provides a surface over which guitars glide above a forest of white noise where vocals, lovingly drowned in a pleasing haze, obscures the visibility of a sunlight that is inevitably waiting above.
