Album Review

On their self-titled debut, Eagulls reveal themselves to be a more intriguing, and more complicated, proposition than mere punk revivalists. Listening to furious outbursts such as "Amber Veins," it's easy to hear why they've played with bands like Iceage, and on "Nerve Endings and "Yellow Eyes," they confront the void with as much noise as possible. Yet Eagulls' angst sounds and feels more modern than another rehash of 1977's discontents. They temper their fire with plenty of atmosphere: riffs are as likely to float in midair as explode; instead of an in-your-face snarl, George Mitchell's howls are half-buried in the churning noise of his bandmates on songs like "Tough Luck"; and "Opaque"'s whirling sound effects give its anthemic thrust an unexpected twist. All of this makes Eagulls as eerie as it is intense as it swings between dread and catharsis. With its slippery chord changes, "Footsteps" is a fine example of the former that borrows a bit of Wire's spiky paranoia. However, Eagulls are at their best when they inject a little joy into the frustration that dominates these songs. They do this brilliantly on "Possessed," an anti-anthem that makes a searing, shoegaze-inspired riff fit through sheer force of will while channeling the album's frustration into something exuberant. Likewise, the way Mitchell wails "I never feel fine" on the album closer "Soulless Youth" suggests Eagulls will find more than a few kindred spirits in their alienation. Eagulls' density and intensity sometimes border on exhausting, but the album is an undeniably bracing beginning.

Customer Reviews

Punk is NOT dead!

I saw these guys on the Letterman show and they sounded and looked great! This album is what the early punk bands in the 70s sounded like. I hear comparisons to Sex Pistols, Joy Division and Bauhaus. Very cool!

Keeps me drowning

This is the best rock album of 2014 so far.

One of the Coolest LP’s of the Year!

This album is a blast, it moves at a blistering pace, and it sits on constant repeat at my house. Infectious indeed! Get it!

Biography

Formed: 2010 in Leeds, England

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

The brash, northern swagger of English outfit Eagulls was encapsulated in their lo-fi, punk-inspired indie rock music. Based in Leeds, the five-piece was initially formed in 2010 by guitarist Mark Goldsworthy and drummer Henry Ruddel. The line-up was completed shortly thereafter with the addition of bassist Tom Kelly and second guitarist Liam Matthews; the final piece of the puzzle was the distinct vocals of George Mitchell. They began to move rapidly through the Leeds music scene, winning plaudits...
