Listen To Everything Everything’s Seventh Studio Album, ‘Mountainhead’

As they gear up for their 2024 Australian tour with The Vaccines, Mancunian art rock quartet Everything Everything have just unveiled their seventh studio record, Mountainhead

Renowned for their visionary fusion of dystopian Black Mirror-style concepts, the band continues to push the boundaries of creativity on their already critically acclaimed new LP. A concept album, Mountainhead offers us a nightmarish vision of an alternative society.

STREAM: Everything Everything – Mountainhead

“In another world, society has built an immense mountain,” Everything Everything frontman Jonathan Higgs explains in a press statement. “To make the mountain bigger, they must make the hole they live in deeper and deeper. All of society is built around the creation of the mountain, and a mountain religion dominates all thought. At the top of the mountain is rumoured to be a huge mirror that reflects endlessly recurring images of the self, and at the bottom of the pit is a giant golden snake that is the primal fear of all believers.

He continues: “A ‘Mountainhead’ is one who believes the mountain must grow no matter the cost and no matter how terrible it is to dwell in the great pit. The taller the mountain, the deeper the hole.”

Despite its overarching vision of this fictional dystopia, each of the record’s 14 songs are fuelled by engaging metaphors that reflect real life, touching on themes of capitalism, environmentalism, religion, technological detachment and more.

Armed with Mountainhead, Everything Everything will return to our shores for the first time in six years this May, co-headlining venues with The Vaccines at five capital cities across Australia.
