We’ve only heard three singles from The Gulps so far but Camden’s latest lairy residents are already jostling hard for the title of ‘Saviours of Indie Rock’n’Roll’ and latest single ‘King of the Disco’ cements their claim to a place in rock royalty even further.
Evoking the party energy Blur hacked into on mega-single ‘Girls & Boys’, The Gulps turn their guitars down in the mix for a moment and ignite a massive knees up in the middle of the alternative music scene, basically forcing us to dance/pogo/mosh with a mind-warpingly infectious sample and a stupidly addictive chorus. If you’re not emphatically chanting “I’m the king of the discooo” at your neighbour’s cat after hearing it then you haven’t been listening properly.
The Gulps hail from all across Europe and the Middle East but have adopted the UK as their musical home and are about to embark on a nearly-sold-out tour (there are only a few tickets left for Glasgow – The Hug and Pint – 2nd June 2022 at the time of writing).
The lads are signed to Alan McGee’s It’s Creation Baby and a debut album is currently being concocted. ‘King of the Disco’ is available on all streaming platforms NOW, released today – 27th May 2022. Find the Spotify link below:
