THE BIG BEAT Song of the Week: Shogun & The Sheets - "Hold on Kid"

Miss Royal Headache? This might work for you.

October 22, 2018

If you're familar with the recently-broken-up Australian band Royal Headache, then you might recognize Shogun's name up above (BIG BEAT listeners might remember hearing the band's final release on the show back in 2015). Yes, Royal Headache announced their breakup back in June and now Shogun has formed a new band with "teenage friends and musician's musicians," and judging by our first taste of the new project, it sounds like he's got everything under control. Enjoy "Hold on Kid" and the 25 other scorchers listed below.
