British up-and-comers TOVA have shared a new single called ‘Headcount’, their third thus far following on from ‘Gun Dogs’ and ‘Absent’.
Speaking about the song and its accompanying video, the band had this to say.
“The ‘Headcount’ music video encapsulates the struggle of identity, of defining your illnesses and negative thoughts separately, about taking from others and acting on selfish impulse to contribute to personal gain, feeling that perhaps that will fill a void in your life, only to realise that of course, it doesn’t.
Personifying a feeling or an emotion as a dark and otherworldly figure, such as a Demon or a Vampire is part of the evolving story within TOVA’s inner monologue; therefore the horror aspect of the video was extremely important to us, as we needed to make sure that we visually captured the fear and turmoil that the lyrics created.”

At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not the track will feature on a forthcoming EP or album, or if it’ll remain as a stand alone single.
