Having turned heads upon the release of their fiery track ‘God Complex’ earlier this year, Melbourne’s Okay Dane returns with a second serving of expertly crafted rock music time in new single, ‘Headache’. Taken from their debut EP Alienation the sounds fit perfectly with what we’ve heard from Okay Dane already this year. Fast-paced, anthemic and rooted in fun and energetic rock territory, the new music from the band is a great indicator of what is still to come.
Capping off a fruitful year of recording and showcasing of some hectic new music, the trio have embraced a new chapter of the band with a chaotic passion driving each new move.
So much so, Okay Dane’s latest is another example of how tight the band has become as a writing and performance unit. The chorus builds in a way that it is easy to imagine sweaty crowds singing along with the undistilled glee you can only get at a rock show. Laid down at Melbourne’s Homesurgery Recordings with Jon Grace (Dear Seattle, Kingswood) and mastered by Sam K Sproull, ‘Headache’ is anything but.
“‘Headache’ is the most pissed off and frenetic we’ve been on a recording. It felt really good to record and is always a blast to play live. Lyrically it’s the most to the point and juvenile we’ve been too, which was heaps of fun. At its heart, it’s about lashing out and being frustrated with someone who can’t be reasoned with.” Okay Dane
