Hypnotic loops and catchy refrains – no surprise there given that Cardiff-based duo Gulp are made up of Super Furry Animals’ Guto Pryce & his partner Lindsey Leven. To celebrate the announcement of a London show on Feb 14th at The Social the band have released this psychedelic video for Search For Your Love, that was inspired by flickering TV screens at a Bristol bus stop. In some ways Gulp are a cliche – they met at a Christmas party and the band name is made of their initials. But the music is far from it. Swarming, exploratory and luscious in its surrealness, they wander between guitars and electronica, before meandering back again and blending it all together in a trippy harmony.
Search For Your Love is available now via Tim Burgess’ independent label O Genesis and Gulp are currently working with Luke Abbott on their second album, which is set to be released in 2017.
