Heavy Salad


Heavy Salad release ‘Wrong Window’  28th Oct 2022 via End of The Trail

Formed in Autumn 2018 by Lee Mann (live bassist with The Moonlandingz), Rob Glennie and Allan Hutchison, Heavy Salad have since expanded to a seven-piece outfit, enlisting Ally McBoo, Esther Maylor, Lucy Hope (AKA The Priestesses) and Oscar Remers along the way. Bonding over a joint interest in psychedelic horror films, (Panos Cosmatos’ surreal classic ‘Mandy’ in particular), they loved the idea of being in a band like a psychedelic cult and thus Heavy Salad was born. The gang released their debut album ‘Cult Casual’ in 2020 on Dipped in Gold Recordings.

The group, charged up on a myriad of musical influences, create a cosmic slop of melodic 90s tinged rock and psychedelic 60s inspired pop infused with the bands eclectic love of surf rock, electronic pop gospel and folk. Already receiving radio play on 6Music, Radio 1 and Radio X from the likes of Guy Garvey (Elbow), Jack Saunders and Steve Lamacq, the band released their debut album Cult Casual, recorded with producers Christophe Bride in Salford (ACR) and Ross Orton in Sheffield (Arctic Monkeys/Working Men’s Club) in September 2020. Heavy Salad are putting the finishing touches to their second LP recorded in West London with Stephen Street (Blur / The Smiths) at Damon Albarn’s Studio13 coming straight off the back of a successful UK tour and trip to Austin Texas as official artists at SXSW 2022, and two shows at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival HEAVY SALAD are readying our cosmic crazy live energy for festivals all over the UK and Europe this summer/Autumn.

ABOUT THE SONG

Wrong Window is the tale of instant messaging with not so instant karma! Yeah, you deleted the message but those double ticks created an ominous cloud shrouding the morning sunshine and that sleepless night with your eyes burning in their sockets has got those nerve endings frayed. It’s a revelation in the wrong window and you’re secretly thrilled! The new single from Heavy Salad produced in London UK at The Bunker at Studio 13 by the legendary Stephen Street.
