Eagulls – “Skipping”
Melancholy Leeds punks Eagulls’ new album Ullages is out later this spring. They’ve offered some excellent singles to lead up to it’s release. “My Life in Rewind” was a churning, widespread rocker and lead single “Lemontrees” was a clean, shimmering track that was more accessible than the excellent noisy shoegaze of their debut LP.
Their latest share is the exquisitely textured, four and a half-minute excursion “Skipping.” The song registers closer to an anthem than Eagulls have ever leaned, with Wire-esque guitars and a huge hook. The Eagulls have certainly switched up their sound for their sophomore effort, and the first few singles have them poised to avoid that dreaded sophomore curse. Check it out.
