A flash of indie-pop, Brit-rock glory The latest EP by masters of hauntingly ethereal britrock Gengahr is a ten minute flash of glory that perfectly encapsulates their sound for all those who didn’t get a chance to listen to A Dream Outside. Suddenly appearing with no prior warning ahead of the band’s UK and Europe tour, ‘Tired Eyes’ is a ghostly experience that gives you both indie-rock and Britpop fulfilment. Capturing the band’s dreamy blend of the two genres without […]
Gengahr have just dropped the video to their latest single ‘Fill My Gums With Blood’, a confusingly dark and I suppose true to the title sequence of events. In good Gengahr tradition, the track has a nice chilled vibe while evoking imagery that is anything but chilled. Just in case you were mistakenly feeling like this was a nice, happy melody you could drift away on though, their accompanying video will snap you back to the darkness of reality. It’s […]
Modern Indie-Pop with a vintage edge For fans of: The Horrors; Mansun Gengahr’s latest track ‘Heroine’ is more modern indie-pop with an Earlybird filter. Calling once more on the ghosts of Indie past, ‘Heroine’ reins in the baggy sound we talked about on ‘Powder’ while remaining flusteringly psychedelic.
Gengahr’s ‘Powder’, as we said in our review, is the perfect little amalgamation of the best of the 90’s indie-guitar scene. From Baggy to Britpop, there’s a nice mix here and it doesn’t sound jarring as it floats between subgenres. To make things better, the music video is also suitably creepy. It depicts a séance, which is apt for a band named after a ghost pokemon, in which some unusually unnerving stuff happens. You know, the kind of stuff that […]
Gengahr hold a special place in my heart. Not just because they share a name (albeit spelt a little different) with my childhood’s favourite pokemon, but because their sound is on the perfect side of vintage. From the band name to the sound of new song ‘Powder’, Gengahr are the 90’s personified. ‘Powder’ is a snapshot of what would have happened if, somewhere between ‘Leisure’ and ‘Modern Life Is Rubbish’, Blur got together with Radiohead for a big old british […]
