Are proud to announce the debut single from
‘Lionheart’ Single Release
10th September 2012

‘GuMM’s washed out guitar crunches sound as though they’ve been dunked deep in the mythical
ocean of shoegaze pop – without the obvious water damage consequences’ – The 405

‘Days like these need a suitably epic and feel-good Track Of The Day, and shitting hell do Bristol’s GuMM ever fit the bill… basically all our favourite guitar bands from the last 5 to 6 years…’
Killing Moon Limited

‘The bastard love child of Ian McCulloch and Kevin Shields, GuMM have found that often impossible middle ground of being influenced by the bands that preceded them while still sounding fresh and modern’ – DRUNKENWEREWOLF

‘GuMM’s metallic, canyon-reverbed guitars form painterly brushstrokes across a ludicrously loud, vivid sonic canvas. Basically, if you’re forced to mix that many metaphors, you know you’re listening to something pretty damn good’ – Artrocker

Howling Owl Records newcomers GuMM are an intriguing trio. Made up of the coolest brother and sister pairing (Lily and Jordan Cook) since…ever, actually, and with a precociously talented, fantastically named Arthur Brown leading from the front…as well as a music taste and knowledge that would shame almost everyone who dares to challenge them…they make pretty much the ideal band. Having great songs always helps too, and GuMM are very healthy in that respect. Their debut single ‘Lionheart’ is one of those perfect introductions to a band, where you feel as though you are old friends after the first listen. A huge riff barrel rolls over you and the rip tide sucks you in, leaving you with no other choice than to swim within all of its good 80’s greatness…you’ll jump straight back in afterwards. The single will be released alongside b-side ‘Windswept’, and staying true to Howling Owls past of producing quite wonderful artwork and packaging, will be encased in sugar paper, with a special cartoon illustration card of one of the band members…got to catch them all!
