CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Drowned in Sound

Throughout its ten pieces, Eagulls delivers in every conceivable way. 

83
A.V. Club

These are songs that almost certainly take on extra ferocity in a live setting. Eagulls captures that intensity well, heralding one of England’s most promising new voices. 

80
DIY

A tour de force of Eagulls' brash and brazen-faced formula, this is a record that’ll be ringing in your ears for days after it’s finished.

80
The 405

More and more on repeated listens it occurs that this band genuinely do seem to give a shit more than most, about their music and the subject matter. 

80
The Line of Best Fit

It’s punk in its truest sense – DIY guitar music, singing songs of counter-culture, protest at the reigning government and the worst facets of modern life. All the while concentrating on getting screwy. 

80
AllMusic

Eagulls' density and intensity sometimes border on exhausting, but the album is an undeniably bracing beginning.

80
NME

For all the ugliness that spills out of Eagulls, they’re never anything less than vital; these are anthems for a doomed youth determined to kick against the pricks rather than mope forlornly and fruitlessly.

75
Pretty Much Amazing

Imperfect as it might be, the album’s relentlessness is also it’s chief allure. In reality, Eagulls sounds more innovative than it probably is due to the world in which it arrives.

70
musicOMH

It’s an uncompromising debut, and contains as much melody as brutality – even though they’d probably punch you for saying so.

65
Under The Radar

The Leeds-based quintet wraps post-punk's dark shadings over an engine of punk urgency and sends the whole thing howling downhill.

58
Consequence of Sound

The band surely know their strengths and have developed their sound, but the individual songs suffer when stacked on top of each other.

Eagulls have blended shogaze and post rock together so well that they seem to have refined both genre's sounds.

NR
Eagulls transcend all expectations for a post-punk album, their "live at a hole-in-the-wall bar near you" sound is parallel to the care and depth put into their lyrics and compositions, which is refreshing in the garage genre.

that energy and wall of sound that punk/shoegaze lovers want. the only thing is just the repetitiveness in each song, but with that magnetic sound it would be hard to leave out.
