Fresh from their headline tour down under, where they were invited into Australia’s leading national radio station triple j to perform for their prestigious Like A Version segment, Gengahr have today released a cover of “everything i wanted” by Billie Eilish.

Talking about their re-imagining of a modern classic by the biggest artist on the planet right now, frontman Felix says “Billie Eilish is an artist that the band admire and this song in particular had so much potential to embellish and make our own. It’s testament to the songwriting and the strength of the melody that this was such an enjoyable task to take on.”

The tour of Australia and New Zealand followed a packed UK run last month to celebrate the release of their new album, SanctuaryGengahr have also announced further UK live dates for October 2020. The 14 date tour will take them to cities they missed out on in February, including Bath, Norwich and Liverpool. Full live dates are listed below and tickets are available via https://www.gengahr.com/tour-dates.  

Expansive and ambitious, Sanctuary has received huge support from BBC 6 Music, Beats 1 and from Greg James, Annie Mac and Jack Saunders at BBC Radio 1, whichplaylisted the single,“Heavenly Maybe”A DIY triumph, it welcomes old friend Jack Steadman of Bombay Bicycle Club as producer, adding his distinct brand of symphonic sparkle to the North London band’s complex, layered sound and pushing them further into all-out pop territory. Born of an epic journey and taking inspiration from Homer’s Odyssey, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2015 debut A Dream Outside and 2018’s Where Wildness Grows sees songwriter Felix tapping into personal pain but coming out fighting.

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.
