Eagulls will return on May 13th with their sophomore LP, Ullages, through Partisan Records. Thus far, the UK post-punk outfit has shared “Lemontrees” and “My Life in Rewind” as teaser tracks. Now, they’ve delivered another pulsating preview in “Skipping”.
When Eagulls announced the new record, they pointed to influences like Cocteau Twins and 1980s-era The Cure; “Skipping” puts those sounds on full display. It’s a pounding, anthemic cry of chugging bass and guitars that build walls of sound ever higher as the track goes on. “‘Cause all I ever wanted was an answer,” vocalist George Mitchell calls out on the final chorus. “But all I ever got was this broken record skipping.” Take a listen to the song below.
A limited edition flexidisc containing “Skipping” will be given away free with all pre-orders of Ullages through the Partisan Records webstore.
