Artist: Gulp Title: Play Label: E.L.K Records Impact Date: 9th September 2013 In July 2012, Gulp released their first single, Game Love, receiving pick of the week in The Guardian Guide and a 5* Artrocker review and securing them a UK tour with Django Django. One year later and Gulp are back with a second single, Play. They promise a shorter wait between singles next time and that an album is imminent. Gulp are Guto Pryce (Super Furry Animals) and Lindsey Leven. They are joined by Gid Goundrey and the recently recruited Gwion Llewelyn (Race Horses). 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 gloaming of rural Scottish and Welsh homescapes. Lindsey Leven - "It's great to finally air some of the music we've been hiding away and recording. We've almost completed the album so will be looking at a release date later this year or early 2014. We're really excited to have a brand new band member too - Gwion Llewelyn (formally of the brilliant and sadly no longer Race Horses)."
