“Eagulls [are] never anything less than vital; these are anthems for a doomed youth determined to kick against the pricks.” – NME
“Post-punk might not be new…but Eagulls have defiantly made it their own.” – Q Mag
Breakneck post-punk, with heady fuzz and gushing basslines.
Eagulls are brash and brazen, lined with shimmering opulence and ominous gloom. They’re straight-up straight-edge guitar rock, with unsettling lyrics and frayed melodies.
Eagulls are the perfect Split Works 10th Anniversary band. As much as we love their sound, it’s also their philosophy that drew us. This is a hardworking independent bunch with staunch DIY ethics, one that once wrote an infamous open letter (at the height of their music industry buzz cycle, no less) that contained the phrase “Fuck rite off” every second sentence. Our kinda lads.
Theirs is a “fierce and angry” sound, with bits of dream-pop, grunge, hardcore, post-punk and shades of goth. The Cure, The Cocteau Twins, Joy Division, The Smiths – throw them into a blender and add some 21st century alienation.
