Seegulls are an indie band based in Chester and the North West. If you want punk music in the style of Japandroids with the added grease stains of early Springsteen records, the attitude of pre-shit Strokes grabbing you by the shirt and screaming in your face one second and reducing you to tears with your arms held embarrassingly aloft the next, harnessing the emotional power of The National and The Gaslight Anthem, you’re gonna want to come to a Seegulls show.
Aside from their primary American influences, they retain a very British style to our music with their other influences including The Smiths, The Libertines and Bombay Bicycle Club. In the past three years, alongside studying Popular Music Performance, they have been gigging across the country and building contacts around the UK. their ultimate desire is to take the music world by storm.
They fuse catchy guitar lines, passionately sung lyrics and an unrivalled energy to our music and do everything in our power to get people up and dancing. They offer something fresh to the decaying genre of indie rock.
Since 2014, they have performed across Chester, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Sunderland, Wrexham, Oxford and so on. Some of their proudest achievements have been playing The Cavern in Liverpool with Dave Monks of BBC introducing, Studio 2 in the same month, and Manchester Bierkeller at the end of their 2015 tour.
They have had similar success locally in Chester, consistently getting amazing responses from keen audiences. Some of their highlights have also been performing alongside “The Sunshine Underground”, “The Magic Numbers” and “Clay”. They’ve also been played on Radio 1 by Huw Stevens, Radio 2 by Dermot O’Leary and Radio 6 Music by Tom Robinson and Steve Lamaq.
