03/03/2014

The U.K.’s Eagulls have been kicking around for some time, building sizable hype for years before releasing their debut record. Now that it’s here, Eagulls proves worth the wait. Tying together influence by American post-hardcore and British post-punk, the band is a shrieking, thorny beast. “Nerve Endings,” an early single and now their album opener, hits with immediate ferocity, as singer George Mitchell generally howls like someone’s life depends on it, and his band builds sizable tension and release, constructing Interpol-style guitar edifices and unleashing big power chords when necessary on songs like “Hallow Visions.” Eagulls fill a similar niche to European compatriots Savages and Iceage—bands that are able to reference some of the best bands of the post-punk era (Joy Division and The Cure, namely) without sounding bookish, preferring to stay loud and raw, even as songs like heavy new-waver “Amber Veins” provide melodic surprises. If only every band the British press fawned over was this awesome.
