Gillbanks are London-based friends Sam Gillbanks and Hugo Heaverman. Citing influences from Nirvana to Nick Drake, Pixies to Nightmares on Wax, they’ve just finished recording their first album together, Lived-In. Anxious? is the first single from the album, and I don’t want to mention any specific names, but frankly it’s in a whole different league from some pretty remarkably successful recent two-piece outfits.
Rough guitars, dirty howling vocals, crunching percussion and some well timed loud/quiet/loud make Anxious? the kind of track that you could easily find yourself sticking on repeat and forgetting everything else.
Except a digital release for Lived-In sometime in the very near future.
