#2: GENGAHR

Emerging late last year under the name RES, the now re-named Gengahr first pricked the ears of Tipping Point in March of this year with their track ‘Fill My Gums With Blood‘. Prior to this the first wave of bloggers had discovered the band with their debut effort ‘She’s a Witch‘, and while both tracks are now unfortunately no longer online, though we hope to see them both on the band’s debut album, they established Gengahr as one of the most exciting new UK bands in 2014.

Arching their sound around striking guitar riffs and infectious vocal melodies, they have drawn comparisons to the likes of UMO, Wampire, and The Doors. Their debut single , ‘Powder‘ and ‘Bathed In Light‘, released in September on Transgressive Records, was co-produced by James Bragg and mixed by whizz-kid Tarek Musa, and made a significant mark in demonstrating the band’s development and return on all of their early promise.

With tour dates planned supporting Wolf Alice and Alt-J, along with their own headline shows, Gengahr will be a key figure in the 2015 musical landscape.
