  • Instatour: Squarehead

    Squarehead do America! In the first of what will be a regular feature here on The Thin Air, we asked Roy, Ian and Ruan from the Dublin-based garage pop band to share their Instagram photos from their recent American tour, which saw them taking in NYC, Boston, Austin and oodles of cats and pizza. Our favourite image is of bassist Ian’s thoroughly awesome jacket, in which the band now refer to him as ‘The Day-Glo Cowboy’. Have a look for yourselves!
