Leeds band Eagulls will return this year with a new, yet untitled album. Today they’ve shared the first taste from it, “Lemontrees”. The song marks a step forward in the band’s sound, the rough noisy post-punk of their excellent debut LP has given way to a more approachable sound that sits somewhere between The Cure and The Stone Roses. Great song, listen above.

• Here’s a new track off our forthcoming 2nd LP, we planned to release material a bit later on, but after missing a show last week, we thought we’d share this. More to come •
The one thing we can glean from this track’s shimmering jangle and strong rhythmic undercurrent is that Eagulls are morphing into something cleaner and more approachable. The echo-chamber aggression has given way to a sparkling sonic environment situated somewhere between the Smiths, Shins, and Stone Roses. It’s a lovely development, and you can check it out below.
