TUNE Eagulls - Velvet
Eagulls release new single ‘Velvet’ via Partisan Records on 5th August, backed by current album ‘Ullages’ (13th May).
If Eagulls wanted to make straight up, fist pumping euphoric guitar music, they could do so with their eyes closes - on ‘Ullages’ they are stretching, and reaching, for something much higher. Pushing themselves was always on the agenda.
“You don’t want to end up getting stuck in a comfort zone. You have to push through the hard moments to get places. You can sail along comfortably or you can take a chance and do what you want to do.” Says guitarist Liam Matthews.
Eagulls will play Kendall Calling Festival, Cumbria (28-31st July), Y Not? Festival, Derbyshire (29-31st July),Reading and Leeds Festival (26-28th August), Festival No.6, Portmeirion, Wales (1-4th September), The Ferret, Preston (23rd September), Liverpool Psych Festival (24th September), Southsea Festival (1st October).
