Happy New Year Walrus readers! A new year has begun and I can’t wait to see what this year holds for new music and what audio gold I’m going to come across.
The first band that has kicked off my year in positive form are Manchester based Gorgeous Bully (Facebook/Twitter). Starting off as a solo project trough the single handled ambitious of Thomas Crang the band are now a strong four piece playing gigs and recording records as they go. Raw and ready this four piece make catchy lo-fi reverbed pop records that will kick off your year in upbeat style.
Their latest EP Nobody Hates You As Much As You Hate Yourself is released via Art Is Hard Records, a label that I have truly grown very fond of over the course of 2013. With a rooster of bands including Best Friends, Sun Staines and The Black Tambourines Gorgeous Bully are in good company.
The EP comes out on the 17th February and kicks off with the infectious garage surf chaos of “Sinking Feeling”. A track that’s full of punchy fuzzy mayhem that is sure to get your gears going again. Download it free for your listening pleasure.
