The Origins of the Riot Grrrl Ethos

Interview with Rhi Kavok: Frontwoman of Gulls

"Brighton trio Gulls’ #punkrockpoempop sounds like Sleaford Mods and Bikini Kill in a high-speed collision on the bumper cars. Stripped back riffs meet sweet beats; all with a message running through it. This is a whole new kind of Brighton Rock.

"Gulls filter their fury at local and global injustice through the prism of their seaside home. These songs want you seething and seduced."

Who are you and what do you do?

Bringing our music to wider and more diverse audiences. Wanting to be an ally and wanting to know the best way to do that.

Tom Robinson playing our last two singles on his Saturday evening 6 Music show resulted in a lot of screaming and celebrating.
