Pretty indie and on the down low, this bunch. Manganese was formed in Glasgow, Scotland and is
led by frontman Euan Barr. End of history lesson and on to the here and now. The
Headcase EP is full of snacky treats, not the least of which being the lead song, "Backbone." Along the
lines of a male-fronted Garbage, with a snarling guitar edge, singer Barr's vocals occasionally
having a Mark Bolanesque quality to them. A nice, concise 3 and a half minute blast of catchy,
rhythmic alt-rock and hopefully a good omen for Manganese's future.
