Sounds of 2015 - #13 - Gengahr

Some would say this band is a surprise, but after signing to Transgressive - the very same label that signed Foals when they were unknowns - and have an EP release penned in and are set to have a storming year next year. With a string of dates supporting fellow Transgressive signees Dry The River and management label mates Wolf Alice they're surely going to be on the road a lot next year.

After seeing Gengahr open for Wolf Alice earlier on this year we've been a fan of theirs, and today the band have unveiled a steady stream of songs since, culminating in the release of "Powder" in late 2015, we picked up their EP for just £4 after the show earlier in the year and even from the early days we could tell they were going to just be big by the end of the year, and in January 24th 2015 they're also supporting Alt-J at the massive O2 Arena in London! So from pub venues to arenas in a matter of 8 months isn't bad!

They're a band that doesn't jeer up the crowd, yet wows them with their delicate guitar tones, captivating vocals, oohs and aahs as well as their flashes of early Radiohead intertwined in their music. 2015 could see a departure from their 'demos sound', but an exciting year is definitely on the cards!
