Gulp are Guto Pryce (Super Furry Animals) and Lindsey Leven, with Gid Goundrey providing guitar and Gwion Llewelyn (Race Horses) on drums. Fuzzed-up bass, dream-folk vocals, acoustic and electronic drums and synths...their cinematic and ethereal sound is a musical manifestation of the road trip; the landscape and events along the way, filmic scenes and melodies - from the sun-squinting, flickering saturation and lens flare of the Californian desert to the gloamin of rural Scottish and Welsh homescapes.
June 2012 saw the release of their debut single, Game Love, which received a 5* review from Artrocker magazine and pick of the week in The Guardian Guide. In late 2012 Gulp toured the UK and Ireland supporting Django Django and also contributed to the Django's Hi Djinx! remix lp with a cover version of Hand of Man.
July 2013 saw the release of Gulp's second single 'Play' and appearances at many of the UK's summer festivals.
Gulp's debut LP was completed in January 2014 and is due for release in the Spring.
"a thing of eyeball popping beauty that deserves to have psychotropic palm leaves wafted at its feet (and then, ideally, eaten)"
Artrocker 5 stars *****
"It's an amalgam of 21st-century electronic squiggles and vintage airy psych-folk, as contemporary as video games and as old as the hills" Spin.com
"(Game Love's) spooked demeanour suggests The Wicker Man getting fresh with Nancy Sinatra. That's Gulp: easy to swallow, hard to forget" Guardian Guide Pick of the Week
