Release a video for “Everything & More”
Taken from their third full-length album, Sanctuary, released on 31st January 2020 via Liberator Music (part of The Mushroom Group)
Perform live in the UK next month with Bombay Bicycle Club and will headline shows worldwide early 2020 including EartH in London on 21st February 2020
North London four-piece Gengahr release a video for their new single, “Everything & More”. Directed by David East, the cinematic video references Homer’s Odyssey, which was constantly in the back of songwriter Felix’s mind when writing the new album, acting as a constant guide. Felix said the following of the video, which was launched this morning via NME:
“The video for “Everything & More” was shot over a series of days in Berlin, by our exceptionally talented and dear friend Dave J East and is a 2 part film that follows the trials and tribulations of a young man trying to find his way back home.”
“Everything & More”, which was premiered by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, is the“shimmering first cut” (DIY) from Gengahr’smuch anticipated third full-length album, Sanctuary, released on 31st January 2020 via Liberator Music (part of The Mushroom Group). More expansive and ambitious than ever before, Sanctuary is the experimental alt-pop band’s finest body of work to date, a DIY triumph which welcomes old friend Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club as producer, adding his distinct brand of symphonic sparkle to Gengahr’s complex, layered sound and pushing the band further into all-out pop territory than they’d ever dared stray before. Recorded at the brand new Propagation House way out in Bude in Cornwall, the album also recaptures the magic that old school friends Felix Bushe, John Victor, Hugh Schulte and Danny Ward felt when they were making their debut.
Gengahr will tour the UK next month as special guests of Bombay Bicycle Club and will headline a series of UK and European dates in February 2020 with their biggest London show to date at EartH on Friday 21st February. Tickets are available now via SeeTickets and full dates are below with UK shows in bold.
Born of an epic journey, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 debut A Dream Outside and 2018’s Where Wildness Grows sees songwriter Felix Bushe tapping into personal pain but coming out fighting. With mixing from the hugely in-demand Nathan Boddy (James Blake, Nilufer Yanya, Shame), additional production from John Victor and engineering from A Dream Outside’s engineer James Bragg, Sanctuary is vibrant, intoxicating, intimate and alive; the product of friends having a good time and seizing control of their own destiny.It is a heartfelt, sophisticated body of work that runs the full gamut of human feeling, with a positive ending in the form of the beautiful, twinkling “Moonlight” – a harmonious conclusion of unison and togetherness, hinting at a bright future.
