- Catch them at Rough Trade Bristol for Wax Music’s Sixth Birthday on a great lineup
- ‘Arrow‘ presents only the second release from the South West quartet
- The band draw influences from the likes of Ty Segall, Morphine & The Stooges
Catchy right from the start and continuing that way throughout, Gum Soul (great name btw) deliver a nail-bitingly jumpy tune with Arrow, always bubbling and ready to blow at any moment. You’re going to have to wait until the final third to hear the solo which we can’t even begin to imagine live, before the band collects itself to finish as cooly and rhythmical as they started.
