Since forming in 2009, Leeds-based Eagulls have become synonymous with a discontented, disillusioned kind of anger, molded into bullets of post punk thatâ€™s rife with urgency and aggression.
Now, following further standalone releases, their debut album is complete and slated for release in early 2014. Finessing the incensed spirit of their early tracks and gigs, it sets its stall out as a heavier, darker and more exhilarating step on from whatâ€™s come before. â€˜Nerve Endingsâ€™, opening track and first taste of the record, encapsulates that in throbbing bass and George hollering â€œcanâ€™t find my endâ€ whilst â€˜Fester-Blisterâ€™ provides an anthemic streak cutting through a wall of frenetic noise. â€˜Tough Luckâ€™ takes inspiration from outside the punk pool associated with Eagulls, boasting a rumbling Joy Division-esque bassline. It all ends on the searing rush of â€˜Soulless Youthâ€™, which finds George declaring â€œI never feel fine/Theyâ€™re soulless insideâ€¦ the soulless youthâ€ with enough bile to make it clear just how he feels about his generation.
With the record now complete and ready for release, expect their own unique brand of mayhem to be lighting up venues around the country as they return to their natural environment of the road to reinforce their abrasive brilliant reputation once more.
