While knowing that The FountNHead take their name from Ayn Rand's famous paean to nonconformity certainly prepares one to expect the unexpected from this Atlanta rap outfit, their reality still feels like a fiction dreamed up in a distant utopia. Owing equally to the hippie politics of Arrested Development, the DIY ethos of the Sex Pistols and the hybridized noise-pop of Linkin Park, these four kids play all their own instruments while rapping and crooning blue-collar concerns
"The FountNHead are a band from Atlanta that recently relocated to Los Angeles. Let’s welcome them with open arms by checking out their video for “As a Skunk.” Ayn Rand-inspired hip-hop/rock crossover music? Yeah we’ve got that now."
"As misunderstood and underemployed misfits, The FountNHead felt a disconnect from the stories of urban youth culture often portrayed in the media. They felt there was no longer a voice that the disenfranchised generation of hip-hop could relate to. As a response, they stepped up to challenge the traditional value system of hip-hop by creating danceable and energetic music that is backed by an empowering message of individuality and sprinkled blissful sarcasm that address social and political issues. "
With the fusion of hip hop, punk, and electronics, the four piece force The FountNHead’s album ‘Higher than Heaven, Still Blacker than Hell’ is a dynamic momentum reverberator that makes us dance, rock it, and know we are seeing new being born. Authur Motif, Jewels Andrea, Saint MathYous, and Shawn Nixon hold no bars back in this wicked ride that starts and finishes strong and leaves you craving more.
The FountNHead-These guys are the definition of afro-punk music. They are a four piece punk, electronic, hip hop band who destroys the stage every time they hit it. I have their EP and it’s amazing; Full of energy and fun. They are building a strong name for themselves. I like their future.

The FountNHead is a band that easily blurs genre lines. Close your eyes and in the same song you might think you’re listening to anything from power pop to hip-hop to punk to rap or something in between
Breezing through their set which featured many tracks off their debut EP Higher than Heaven, Still Blacker than Hell, I was sold. Their sound is unique, featuring equal parts of southern brashy rock and southern rap and crunk music. Booty Bass and Guitars are an unlikely pairing, but when it sounds this cohesive who cares about genre? Do yourself a favor and get into this one.
