Gateway Drugs mix shoegaze and garage rock on 'Head'

Posted on

L.A.-based alt-rock band Gateway Drugs—made up of siblings Gabe, Noa, and Liv Niles (children of The Knack‘s Prescott Niles), along with Blues Williams—have a debut LP, Magick Spells, out March 3, and Wednesday they’re dropping its newest single, “Head.” Produced by Blind Melon’s Christopher Thorn, the track is melancholic, smoke-tinged, and begs the best of the punkish garage rock. 

The band is touring this spring with shoegaze institution Swervedriver. Stream the track and see the full list of tour dates below.
