Can’t wait for the Irish post-punk-chainsaw turbo’s new LP.
Their psyche-piercing anarchy sound gives me goosebumps.

We already got the vintage bone-breaking GB single
Eight Shivers and here’s the follow-up Backwash.

Dara Kiely about the new piece: “Backwash” is one of the few tracks where
the words represent a dream-like circumstance. The lyrics are from a stream of
consciousness rant, weird imagery and all that. The track is about attraction – fancying someone and not knowing what to say exactly. It’s an indirect love song, knowing you like someone but can’t quite articulate it. Thinking that you have already expressed your feelings, but like waking up from a dream you’ve forgotten what you actually have said or felt.

Surprise, surprise, Gilla Band can rock too.
Well, the Gilla Band way, that is.

You can boogie-woogie

New album THE NEW NORMAL is out on 7 October via Rough Trade.
