GALOSHINS are officially a three-piece, unofficially a four-piece, from Gourock (near Greenock) in Scotland. Their music is frenzied, sometimes discordant, sometimes melodic; sometimes freak-out, sometimes pure pop(ish.) Sometimes all within the confines of one song!
Earlier this week they released TWO EPs – innovatively named ‘EP1‘ and ‘EP2′ Combined, they amount to eleven tracks spanning some thirty-one minutes and sounding like …. well, like say Sultans of Ping doing The Dead Kennedys. Or, if you’re more familiar with the burgeoning Scottish scene these past few years, think along the lines of We Are The Physics jamming with Super Adventure Club.
Whichever way you look at it, or listen, it’s a quite spectacular way of announcing your arrival.
(I have only one track to stream here – if more become available, they’ll definitely feature.)
(‘EP1’ and ‘EP2’ are released through Armellodie Records and available now – February 2013)
