Gulp are Guto Pryce (Super Furry Animals) and Lindsey Leven, with Gid Goundrey providing guitar and Gwion Llewelyn (Race Horses) on drums. Fuzzed-up bass, dream-folk vocals, acoustic and electronic drums and synths… their cinematic and ethereal sound is a musical manifestation of the road trip; the landscape and events along the way, filmic scenes and melodies – from the sun-squinting, flickering saturation and lens flare of the Californian desert to the gloamin of rural Scottish and Welsh homescapes.
June 2012 saw the release of their debut single, Game Love, which received a 5* review from Artrocker magazine and pick of the week in The Guardian Guide. In late 2012 Gulp toured the UK and Ireland supporting Django Django and also contributed to the Django’s Hi Djinx! remix lp with a cover version of Hand of Man.
Gulp’s second single ‘Play’ was released in June 2013. They enjoyed appearances at many of the UK’s summer festivals, including Green Man, Kendal Calling and Festival No.6.
In March 2014 the band embarked on their inaugural visit to North America with shows at SXSW in Austin,Texas and Los Angeles. The debut lp ‘Season Sun’ is released July 8th on Everloving Records in the U.S. and on Sonic Cathedral in Europe on July 14th. There will be a handful of gigs over the summer, including a second trip to the Isle of Eigg for the Howlin’ Fling Festival before a UK tour in October 2014.
