Eagulls – Tough Luck


If you cover a track by Killing Joke, you’re bound to get my attention. This is exactly what the Leeds five-piece punk group, Eagulls, did earlier this year with their excellent take on “Requiem”. The relentless “Though Luck” is their latest and first single of their impending self-titled debut album, expected an early March 2014 release via Partisan Records. There is something refreshingly different about “Though Luck” – not sure if it’s the bass heavy registry or the massive reverbs on the vocals – but it nonetheless takes me back to the early 80’s and the heydays of punk. If iceage’s You’re Nothing deserves the title as the greatest punk record of 2013, then next year Eagulls could have a real shot at the title.
