Almost two years on from their self-titled debut, Leeds-based post-punk crew Eagulls have announced the details for their forthcoming second album, Ullages.
In advance of the new record, expected to hit shelves on May 13th, Eagulls have shared ‘My Life in Rewind’. Instead of a full on repeat of the jaggedly noisy post-punk that has made their name thus far, there’s been a change of tact from Eagulls. They explore a more melodic side of the sound they carved out so well on their debut record. Replacing the snarl is something approaching late ’80s/early ’90s indie and shoegaze, with the guitar lines of Smiths-era Johnny Marr. It is all enveloped echoing, empty expanse and George Mitchell’s harrowed vocal croon is loneliness personified. Bleak, yet somewhat beautiful too, ‘My Life in Rewind’ revels in gloom, demonstrating there are many shades darkness.
Ullages is penned for release on May 13 through Partisan Records. For now, you can hear ‘My Life in Rewind’ below.
