LISTEN: Gengahr - 'Never A Low'

Following on seamlessly from my Bombay Bicycle Club post earlier in the week (since then I've been sent an early stream of their album and I'll share a review soon but... a clue: it's very good) this next post is a new tune from their recent tour buds Gengahr. They're releasing their third studio album Sanctuary on 31st January and I'm really excited for it. From what we've heard with the recent singles Heavenly Maybe, Everything & More and Atlas Please the band are at their best, exploring creatively with the confidence and freedom that a third record brings. New track Never A Low is a bit of a departure... a little moodier in sound than normal but still with the elements that make up an ace Gengahr track - perhaps most notably Felix's gorgeous falsetto.

Talking about the track, the band explain that "experimentation, collaboration and pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones is at the core of this album [...] our sound and the way we work together has really evolved, and 'Never A Low' is the track which for us best represents the results of this change." 

Alongside the new track, they've just announced support acts for the upcoming UK and EU tour - with Fake Laugh and Bessie Turner joining them for the UK shows. Tickets and album pre-order is here on their site.
