“A thing of eyeball popping beauty, that deserves to have psychotropic palm leaves wafted at it’s feet (and then, ideally, eaten)” Artrocker ***** 5 stars

“It’s an amalgam of 21st century electronic squiggles and vintage airy psych-folk, as contemporary as video games and as old as the hills” Spin.com

“(Game Love’s) spooked demeanour suggests The Wicker Man getting fresh with Nancy Sinatra. That’s Gulp: Easy to swallow, hard to forget” Guardian Guide Pick Of The Week

Gulp are a Cardiff-based, garage space-pop band fronted by Guto Pryce (Super Furry Animals) & Lindsey Leven.The pair are joined by Gid Goundrey on guitar and various friends on drums including Stuart Kidd (Euros Child/Norman Blake), Kliph Scurlock (Flaming Lips/ Gruff Rhys), Gwion Lleweyln (Meilir Jones) & others.

Originally from Scotland, vocalist Lindsey moved to Cardiff to where she met Guto Pryce at a Christmas psych party– a joining of kindred spirits in a city with an ever-evolving arts scene. It was there that the foundations of Gulp came to be as they joined forces to create this musical venture.

Gulp make warm, fuzzy, luscious pop by combining ethereal sounds of both acoustic and electric drums, synths and guitars. Their music is like a 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.

 

 

Recorded on a farm in mid Wales, new single Search For Your Love follows on from the band’s last album release Season Sun in 2014, which received praise from The Guardian, The Quietus, NME & a variety of other publications. The band brought the recordings home to construct before finishing with Luke Abbott in Norwich.

Currently they're sharing their new single Search For Your Love, which is out now via Tim Burgess’ label O Genesis.
