Personalities | The Futureheads | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 2004–present)

The Futureheads – Ross Millard, Barry Hyde (both vocals), Dave Hyde (drums) and David Craig (bass) – came to the public’s attention with their cover of Kate Bush’s ‘Hounds Of Love’, delivered in fine northern accents (they hail from Sunderland). Yet the single was the band’s fifth, thankfully acting as a pointer for many towards the energetic, intelligent guitar pop they could produce. Signed to dance imprint 679, they enjoy a rare freedom that is reflected in their output.
