Gulp are a Cardiff-based garage space-pop band fronted by Guto Pryce (Super Furry Animals) and Lindsey Leven. They are joined by Gid Goundrey on guitar and various drumming wizard friends from the wigged-out Welsh pop community.
Originally from Scotland, vocalist Lindsey moved to Cardiff where she met Guto Pryce at a Christmas psych party – a joining of kindred spirits in a city with an ever-evolving arts scene. It was there that the foundations of Gulp came to be as they joined forces to create this musical venture.
‘A thing of eyeball popping beauty’ Artrocker ***** 5 stars
Gulp make warm, fuzzy, luscious pop by combining ethereal sounds of both acoustic and electric drums, synths and guitars. Their music is like a 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 gloaming of rural Scottish and Welsh homescapes.
After a period of relative inactivity – co-inciding with Guto hitting the stage with the Super Furries again during 2015/16, Gulp landed a superb new single to dispel the 2017 January lull. Recorded on a farm in mid Wales, ‘Search for your Love’ complete with extended Django Django mix is an instant classic.
