If you like your shoegaze a bit noisier than usual, then this just might be for you. The EP is available from the Galants Bandcamp page or via Jigsaw Records, who had this to say about it:
The best thing about EPs (when they’re done right) is that it gives bands a chance to put their best songs right up front, with no filler. Don’t get me wrong, I love albums as much as the next guy, but a very good EP can be just as strong – if not stronger – than a decent album. Take this one, for example, the first for these four Irish fellows: it’s only got four songs, but all of them are complete winners. It’s seriously hard to pick out a single favorite on this disc, as each one is a perfect example of hard-hitting shoegaze/noise-pop in the vein of Ride, Swervedriver or the Brother Kite (particularly the latter, who have also perfected the blend of shoegaze and noise-pop). Not bad for a first outing, eh?
Galants play The Workman’s Club on January 23rd, opening for Beach Slang.
