‘Ullages’ is an altogether different record from the heady fuzz of Eagulls’ 2014 self-titled debut: the drawn out textured melodies recall the shimmering opulence of The Cocteau Twins and the melancholic majesty of The Cure.
Highlights of the last campaign included taking both ‘Later… with Jools Holland’ and ‘The Late Show With David Letterman’ in the US by storm, sharing stages with the likes of Arcade Fire and Pharrell, scooping a major NME Award and playing at some of the world’s most renowned festivals including Coachella, Latitude, Field Day and Reading / Leeds.
The artwork is a collaboration with British cult photographer Peter Mitchell.

“There’s always been more to Eagulls than just fire and brimstone. With ‘Ullages’ those widescreen ambitions finally look set to be fully realised.” - DIY
“A sparkling sonic environment situated somewhere between The Smiths, Shins and Stone Roses. It’s a lovely development.” - Stereogum
