Comforts use their secret weapon to bring some extra oomph to new single ‘Get Out Your Head’

Brighton-based indie-rock band Comforts are back with a new single, ‘Get Out Your Head’, taken from their upcoming EP. Produced and mixed by Alexander Gordon, the band’s latest release sees them leaning into their rockier side, with walls of fuzzy guitars, a high octane energy, and amped-up choruses that are topped with lead vocalist Sam’s honest and personal lyricism.

The band’s infectious songwriting, vibrant intertwining guitar lines, and euphoric energy are once again on full display, providing a fine addition to their growing catalogue. ‘Get Out Your Head’ features an ever-changing, charismatic, and infectiously catchy vocal line that offers another vibrant soundscape to yet another indie anthem.

Sam explains that the track is the first song the band recorded using a YAMAHA FX500, an audio effects unit from the 80s. The unit’s huge reverb setting gives the intro a shoegaze vibe, while the distortion patch adds just the right amount of craziness to the chorus. Lyrically, the song is about having the courage to put negative comments from others behind you and remembering your self-worth.

Comforts have captured the melancholic, colourful heartstrings of contemporary pop and the energetic familiarity of 00s indie rock giants, all while retaining a fresh and exciting edge. With ‘Get Out Your Head’, the band proves that they are still on track for a big year ahead.

“Get Out Your Head is the first song we recorded using a YAMAHA FX500, an audio effects unit from the 80’s. Our producer Gordy had one and we instantly fell in love with the sound. It’s got this huge reverb setting that gives this shoegaze vibe to the intro and then this crazy distortion patch that is way too much but just fits perfectly for the chorus. 

Lyrically the song is about someone talking about you behind your back but having the courage to put it past you and remembering your self worth. ‘Just remember, remember who you are, just remember, as these time’s get hard.’ It’s also one of our favourites to play live!”
