Nails Hide Metal
“Rock won't eliminate your problems, but it will let you sort of dance all over them.” - Pete Townshend
“I just do what I do. I like to make music.” - Neil Young
After discussing the music that they listened to and loved, MeLinda Dalton and Russ Quinn got together to write and play. The chemistry was perfect to develop the songs that came out of the union in 2009. In 2010, they recorded a six song EP titled ‘Ghost’ under the name The Ninas. In 2011, they recorded their second EP ‘Where Are We Now’ and changed their name to NAILS HIDE METAL (a line from their song ‘Matter’). A third is in production and close to release.
While the two recorded and produced ‘Where Are We Now’, an atmosphere of musical experimentation began to take place and their sound emerged.
The duo can be described as Indie Rock but influences heard go further. Rock… Alternative… Country… Singer/Songwriter … Pub and Punk Rock …
NAILS HIDE METAL can be heard on a variety of radio stations including WPKN, WPLR and WESU.

Gone To The Buffalo
Head with Wings
A precocious infant of a band, Head with Wings in just two short months has found its distinct voice in the New Haven music scene. Comprising members Josh Corum (Vocals, Guitars), Joe Elliot (Bass), Andrew Testa (Drums), and Brandon Cousino (Guitars), the band has developed an ever-evolving brand of alternative rock reminiscent of Thrice meets Minus The Bear with the progressive flourishes of Opeth and Porcupine Tree and the sorrow and vocal passion of the late Jeff Buckley.
"These days, my lyrics typically paint scenery and lean toward the obscure," says Corum. "This is not always the case, as we have songs like
"Time Will Never Leave Me Be", that deal with the idea of always being antagonized by time; being choked while working towards success." This sense of urgency goes beyond the themes of their lyrical content as Head With Wings already has plans to release a 3-4 song EP and prepare for a national tour in their first year as a group.
"Watching interviews and understanding the philosophy of some of my favorite bands helps to envision a path to success," adds Corum. With ambitions this high and artistry this intriguing, Head With Wings have all the talent and intangibles to walk that path. If the first two months are any indication, Head With Wings' continued prodigious growth makes them a band to follow in 2012.
