GILLBANKS are making delicious noise in the capital, the band are led by the tenacious but free spirited Sam Gillbanks and are gearing up to release their debut EP ‘Lend Me Your Skin’. A ferocious yet very melodic slice of indie rock.
It’s the noise pop zest of Lusts mixed with the atmospheric nature of Palace, via the indie venom of The Districts. The first two tasters of the forthcoming EP are streamable below, both subsist in different musical territories. One is a pensive, jangly guitar-led, slow burner and the other is a rebellious, hands-in-the-air anthem that bares a darker skin.
At a time when alternative rock is on the up, and every band has a shot at making it big. GILLBANKS are one of those bands who stand out as trailblazers of the scene, assuredly passionate musicianship and a lyrical depth to back it up, they could just be on the cusp of something great.
The debut EP ‘Lend Me Your Skin’ is released on 27th November. Pre-order a copy here.
