H-H-Headless Horseman

Really hot thumbnail for this article post!

Haunting yet tranquilizing were my first adjectives for Headless Horseman. I wasn't sure what to make of these fellow New Yorkers, Fareed and Conner. Although after a couple listens, my mind was blown. They played with Sun Airway as part of the Brooklyn Northside Festival, and that is how my discovery was made. Headless Horseman creates a genre of its own because I can guarantee that you've never heard anything like this before. Perhaps a chilled out, eerie mixture of Broken Social Scene and Javelin. "SH8KR" and "Jailbait" are my favorites. Most of their tracks are under 3 minutes but you will subconsciously have them on repeat and listen longer. Yes, please see if I'm right.

  • Loving this new find..I'm with you on SH8KR and Jailbait being the best of the bunch but they all so unique it's hard to pintpoint just one or two! They like a chilled Crystal Castles?

  • Did they credit Etyl in the song "Jailbait"? I have the original from many years ago.

    • Oh dang. The original is incredible.

      • Yeah, the original had that amazing trip hop feel that many have tried to imitate. While Jailbait is a good song, without putting a credit to J'me fais mal I do feel that Headless Horseman have ripped the whole song.

        • Hey Scott, we didn't officially release this song yet. If we had, we would have surely accompanied the song with proper credit. Glad it has been brought to consciousness though, as the original is dope.
