Eagulls may sound like the Echo & the Bunnymens of this world, there is a main difference. Eagulls have taken something else into account also: a song takes a melody to succeed. This is exactly what the band delivers on Eagulls. Great guitar riffs and melodies over fiercely pounding drums, bass and rhythm guitar. The lead guitar and the voice both know what an interesting melody sounds like and deliver. Something a lot of post punk late 70s, early 80s bands forgot all about.
In this vain Eagulls pounds away for 10 songs straight. The quality is nearly one straight line from 1 to 10. I think this about says it all. Fans of punk, rock, The Jam, Oasis with an extra pepper added and even The Velvet Underground, all ought to know enough by now. Eagulls produced a great and fun debut album.
you can listen to 'Tough luck' here.
