Are you happy enough with the Savages‘ success? Do you feel vindicated when you see Editors to play sold out shows? But still something’s missing? Well, not really, Eagulls will take care of all your post-punk needs.
They were formed in 2010 in Leeds, released a single immediately (“Council Flat Blues“), and two years later a self-titled ep. Not only the NME and Pitchfork were aware from this brilliant new band, but also Steve Lamacq declared them his favorite band for 2013. And they open for Franz Ferdinand‘s UK tour.
Eagulls’ play what made English underground proud back in the eighties: 24 carat post-punk mainly influenced by Killing Joke, but you can also spot the early days of Cure, the raw power of Clash and some well-hidden moments of Warsaw. However, their sound is not nostalgic, it is fresh as a juicy fruit ready to be consumed.
