Eagulls - My Life In Rewind

Cavernous and echoing, the moody Leeds lot’s newest guise revels in gloom.

Eagulls’ self-titled debut was one of Britain’s most gripping in years - a throat-grabbing exercise in snarling, spitting catharsis, it took everyday sickness and nailed it to a cross; blood, sweat and all accompanying gore were part and parcel. Between ‘My Life In Rewind’ and the previously-unveiled ‘Lemontrees’, though, Eagulls’ new album ‘Ullages’ looks dead-set on proving there’s more than one shade of black.Cavernous and echoing, the moody Leeds lot’s newest guise revels in gloom. Where once, saw-blade guitars cut their path, ‘Ullages’ sees Eagulls swathe everything in smoke, disappearing into the ether. Every instrument sounds like it was recorded in the deepest, darkest corner of the Yorkshire moors, every note echoing across that empty expanse. George Mitchell’s newfound crooning vocal is loneliness incarnate, ‘My Life In Rewind’ finding him yearning for another shot at pretty much any turning point in his life. A ullage is defined as “the amount by which a container falls short of being full.” An anagram of the band name itself, in this bleaker-than-ever depiction of modern anxiety, ‘Ullages’ looks set to prove that there’s more sides to Eagulls’ darkness than how hard they can hit.
