WE WANT HEAD
Hi. My name is Nate Head.
Ever since I learned what giving “head” meant in the eighth grade, I was insecure about my last name. “What’s your middle name, ‘Gives-Great?’”, my cleaver classmates would ask. At my high school talent shows, my small group of ingenious friends would always start the chant “WE WANT HEAD! WE WANT HEAD!”, just moments before I’d take the stage.
At 24, I’ve stopped feeling insecure about my last name as I’ve learned to lean into who I really am. So, for the first time in the 8 years I've been releasing music, I will unapologetically be NATE HEAD.
I wrote “SO LIKE LA” when I realized that I had sunk into this middle ground between who I used to be, and who I’m becoming. I was missing the simplicity of the past, while knowing for sure I'd never want to go back.
