Hull’s Vulgarians have announced details of their new EP titled Almost-Instinct, Almost True, due out on May 5th 2017. Produced by MJ of Hookworms (Honeyblood, Eagulls, Pulled Apart By Horses), the news of the EP arrives in line with the first single from Almost-Instinct, Almost True, ‘Hands Around The Waste’ with a UK headline tour through May soon to be announced.
The single is coated in grunge and hard rock influences and is magnificent at referencing these genres. Taking its title from work by Hull poet Philip Larkin, Almost-instinct, Almost True finds Vulgarians in their most pulse-quickening but focused form, demonstrating a marked progression in sound from their previous release. There is a heftier emphasis upon the bass and groove within songs; bassist Jodie Smith and drummer Connor Cheesman find a progressed alliance in the rhythm section that plays into Vulgarians' newly found sleaze.
