Eagulls - Tough Luck

Eagulls, the terribly named, Leeds punks are about to blow up the net. They played Letterman Friday afternoon and then the Burg later that night (at 1 in the morning!!). Eagulls produce Punk that lies somewhere between Iceage, and Merchandise. They rekindle an early English sound, reminiscent of the Buzzcocks, but also Echo and the Bunnymen, or The Chameleons. Their a band that fills a necessary Post-punk void in 2014. Where A lot of their contemporaries rely heavily on either wishy-washy jangling guitars, or an overly fuzzed-out sound, Eagulls fit somewhere in the middle while not getting lost in it. Check out their latest video for Tough Luck and a live performance of Possessed:
