Ravishing psychedelic pop” – THE GUARDIAN

“Dances with uncertainties before coming to one severe conclusion…capable
breaking down just about any boundary.” – DIY
Just when you thought that buzz worthy Liverpool five piece Gulf had stepped beyond gaze of that fast moving drift net they call ‘hype’, new track Ocean marks a vibrant return.
Since breaking the surface of the largely languid indie tributaries earlier this year, publicity shy Gulf have been hiding out in their Liverpool studio. Adding beef and brawn to their singularly diaphanous pop hooks, Ocean represents a mini-psych symphony in two parts.
Beneath the technicolour wash and the waif like melodica, lies Gulf’s distinctly heavy rhythm section, an unabashed hook and a singular sonic identity.
With more new music to follow in the coming weeks – Gulf head out for their first festival shows including Liverpool Sound City, Field Day, Latitude, Secret Garden Party and Tramlines, with more dates to be announced.
Gulf live dates:
Sunday 7th June – FIELD DAY
Thursday 18th June – Liverpool, Kazimier.
Friday 19th June – Wrexham, Central Station
19th July – LATITUDE FESTIVAL,
23rd – 26th July – SECRET GARDEN PARTY, Huntingdon
25th July – TRAMLINES, Sheffield
