GREEN SEAGULL: Lightning Girl 7″
Taking influence from studio-scene psych, west coast jangle and baroque harmony pop, London’s Green Seagull are back with a new 7” single.
Having released four singles and two albums, mainly on the now defunct Mega Dodo label, their first release since 2020’s blissed-out Cloud Cover LP sees the band adopt a harder, more urgent edge, aided and abetted by new guitarist Dan Davies (formerly of Wolf People).
Kicking off with a echo-laden organ motif, ‘Lightning Girl’ soon dissolves into a haunted garage rocker adorned with the celestial harmonies that have become the band’s trademark. Flip side ‘Barbara’ steers into late 60s swamp-rock territory, with a southern-fried groove and vocal lines that bring to mind the likes of Jackie Lomax and The Kinks.
