New single: Meltheads || Na​ï​ef

Meltheads are a dangerous garage rock / (post-)punk band from Antwerp, who are rightly seen as one of the biggest promises in the Belgian music scene due to their first singles (check out the videos for Disco of L’Amore, Sweet Monica and I Wanna Be A Girl), but even more so because of their intense live shows. On their new single Na​ï​ef, the heavy rhythm section of Yunas de Proost (guitar), Tim Pensaert (bass) and Simon de Geus (drums) slows down the tempo a bit, and frontman Sietse Willems doesn’t sing in English this time. Yet it’s probably their most powerful, urgent, furious and impressive achievement to date. The lyrics are in Dutch/Flemish, but even if you don’t understand them, you probably still feel the message (translated): “I don’t believe in nonsense // I’m not naive // Fight with me // I’m not naive.” An instant classic.

The Naïef EP, featuring four different versions of the track, is out now digitally on vinyl 12″ single through Mayway Records.
