As high-octane debuts go, Eagulls's Eagulls is a doozy, an able re-invigoration of post-punk potency without minimalist baggage that isn't above (or below) a melodically-sound hook, or twenty. (There's certainly some Blur and Smiths buried in their plucky clangor, some shoegaze as well.) Sometimes the bass hauls the water, but the guitars do their fair share. That this Leeds-based group isn't afraid to abuse its equipment helps, and in singer George Mitchell they have the perfect pitchman for a raw, disaffected fury. Get ready to hear the chorus of "Tough Luck" bellowed outside of pubs a lot this spring by belligerent, aspiring hooligans.
