Watch Eagulls Cover The Stone Roses For A.V. Club

Blistering Leeds post-punks Eagulls have already shown their facility with covers by taking on Killing Joke’s “Requiem,” so they were a good choice to participate in the A.V. Undercover series. Their song of choice was the Stone Roses classic “I Wanna Be Adored,” and they gave it a fittingly faithful take that still managed to… More »

Watch Eagulls Play Jools Holland

One of the best songs off Eagulls’ very nice self-titled debut was the shoegaze punk of “Possessed.” The band stopped by Jools Holland to perform it this week, and now the video is available online. Watch it below. More »

Eagulls – “Possessed” Video

Tomorrow marks the release of Eagulls’ stellar self-titled debut, and to herald the occasion the Leeds post-punk ragers have released a video for Loveless-laced album highlight “Possessed.” Plastic Zoo’s video revolves around a kid lighting some lumber on fire in a shopping cart. Not sure what’s going on there, but the song continues to rule. More »

We’ve already posted a bunch of the songs from the album: “Nerve Endings,” “Tough Luck,” the entirely awesome “Possessed.” And now you can stream the whole bracing thing… More »

Watch Eagulls Play Letterman And Show Guest Bill Murray Their Bassist’s “Eagulls Bill Murray” Tattoo

Its current single “Possessed” was one of our 5 Best Songs Of The Week recently, and the group took it to last night’s Late Show, where Bill Murray was the guest. (The performance was taped Thursday… More »

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

Heading into Grammy weekend, it’s kind of fitting that this week’s 5 Best Songs includes a couple artists with a dozen total Grammy awards under their collective belts, and another act that’s up for their first this year, and yet another whose song here takes a (playful) shot at an artist who’s up for seve… More »

Eagulls – “Possessed”

The songs we’ve heard so far from Eagulls have been ferociously shouted, violently deployed post-punk anthems — “Nerve Endings,” “Tough Luck,” and their cover of Killing Joke’s “Requiem” among them. The Leeds band’s latest single “Possessed” is like that too, but it’s sopping with the same sonic bliss that bathed Loveless and the music of… More »

Eagulls – “Tough Luck” Video

Eagulls have a new video out that is a tad less gross than their previous one that featured time-lapse footage of a rotting pig brain. “Tough Luck”‘s clip is just as visually layered and hazy, but here it’s built out of scenes of the band playing. Watch the Sam Alder-directed video below. More »

Eagulls – “Tough Luck” (Stereogum Premiere)

We’ve heard Eagulls kick ass covering Killing Joke and banging out their own material. Now we’ll get a full album of the latter when the Leeds post-punks release their self-titled debut LP on Partisan Records in March. Consider this your official word: the Eagull has landed. (Or it’s just taking off. Or something. You get… More »

Eagulls – “Nerve Endings” Video

The Leeds based rock band Eagulls came up with a pretty smart, albeit nauseating, way to get the anxious mood across in their song “Nerve Endings,” and apparently it led to some police involvement. The murky video consists of a pig brain, acquired from a local butcher shop, left out to rot and filmed i… More »

Eagulls – “Nerve Endings”

The horrifically-monikered Leeds punkers Eagulls play their music as a hard, urgent attack. Brandon posted a couple of their songs way the hell back in 2011, but maybe they’ll make more sense in this brave new post-Savages world. The band has a new 7″ coming out soon, with a Killing Joke cover as the B-side. More »

Eagulls – “Acrostical” & “Council Flat Blues

Leeds quintet Eagulls make a shambling racket akin to No Age doubling up with a studlier Cloud Nothings — or something older and scuzzy from the ’90s Pacific Northwest. They lean into their instruments, but keeping the vocals buried within the feedback doesn’t lessen the anthemics. See, for instance, the B-Side of their forthcoming debut… More »
