Gulf + The Coral DJ Set [+]

Free Before 9pm, £4 Thereafter


Gulf, formed in Liverpool in 2014.

With groove-laden beats, snaking bass lines and the seeming inability
to differentiate between established genres, their sound is a melting pot
of pop, psychedelia, disco and anything in between.

“Mark Jones’s voice is the epitome of anti-singing, in the sense of
someone straining to reach notes and express (as in: expectorate) their
feelings. It is an instrument of cool dispassion, barely breaking into
anything beyond a restrained tenor, conveying boyish wonder and
yearning” – Paul Lester, The Guardian

Gulf are Mark Jones (guitar, vocals, synths), Femi Fadero (guitar,
backing vocals), Tom Murray (guitar, backing vocals), Jake Brown
(bass) and Josh Gorman (drums).

Radio support from Zane Low, Huw Stephens (Radio 1), BBC6,
Amazing Radio and BBC Merseyside, and tipped by The Guardian as

“One of the best bands for 2015’ have given the band early attention.

“Equal parts disorientating, momentous and expansive / Gulf continue
their ascent into the psych stratosphere” – NME
