GULLS – SHOP (released 19.04.19)
Brighton trio Gulls’ #punkrockpoempop sounds like Sleaford Mods and Bikini Kill in a high-speed collision on the bumper cars. Stripped back riffs meet sweet beats; all with a message running through it. This is a whole new kind of Brighton Rock.
Gulls filter their fury at local and global injustice through the prism of their seaside home. These songs want you seething and seduced.
Rhi Kavok: punk poet Boe Higgs: guitar and vox Hicks: drums
SHOP is a clarion call to resist those who close libraries and open chain-stores.
“Young women telling it like it is with righteous anger and noisy guitars” Melita Dennett, Radio Reverb/BBC Introducing South
"As someone who’s lived by the sea their entire life, I’m more than a touch familiar with the keening scream of the rats from the sky, also known as gulls. Safe to say, Brighton’s self-described “punk -rock-poem-pop” trio Gulls are a lot more palatable, and considerably more welcome. Flaws joins the wave of feminist, anti-establishment punk having a resurgence in the wake of the #MeToo and third
wave feminism movements, and makes its own considerable mark. Punk poet Rhi Kavok’s unfettered war cry perfectly slips between a mocking yelp and a commanding punk vocal which drives the points home, while Boe H on guitar and Hicks on drums succeed in creating some Yeah Yeah Yeahs level instrumentals. Packs a punch this one." Sarah Gosling - Fresh On The Net
