"Where live electronics and jagged guitars meet on the floor and thrash the s**t out of each other until neither one is left standing."
Wrexham is not renowned for it's math and post rock heritage, so it's a surprise to find a band to be making such forward thinking, experimental and accomplished digital math rock out of the barren wilds of North Wales as GALLOPS are.
A melange of the experimentation of Battles and Pivot, the more poppier dynamism of Foals, the glitchiness of Aphex Twin and the riffs of Black Sabbath, GALLOPS deliver a live show full of energy and rawness with enough to appeal to both the musos as well as those looking for a bit of dancefloor friendliness.
They've just released an EP on Holy Roar (Pulled Apart By Horses, Rolo Tomassi) and championed by the likes of Huw Stevens and Zane Lowe on Radio 1 as well as being picked to play Radio One's Big Weekend and The Big Chill, Gallops seem set for a bright future.
Immense, furious complex and glitchy instrumental post rock for the feet as much as the ears, we are very pleased to host GALLOPS.
"Riff-heavy, Oxes-style breed of post-rock: Fat, Sabbath-esque riffs underpinned with grooving drum patterns and smattered with laptop electronica; it's post-rock for the head and the heart"
"Fresh, compulsive and inventive. It's cyborg soul music"
