Formed in their native Isle of Anglesey, there’s something of an alternative reality in Seagull Kinevils grunge inspired full-throttle rock that can only have been inspired by living in a community connected to the mainland by only 2 bridges! Establishing themselves in the local Welsh scene under the name Valleum, the band quickly gained a hot reputation for mixing surreal lyrical rhetoric with barnstorming performances, resulting in an ITV appearance, airplay on BBC 6 Music and support slots with the likes of Skindred, Supergrass, Sikth and Chumbawumba. Tours of Norway and Ireland (supporting the legendary Shane McGowen) quickly followed but with the addition of a new drummer the band decided to start afresh as Seagull Kinevill.
Their new single and album title track ‘To Insanity and Beyond’ typifies the band’s sound. A tale of fantasist escapism and humour driven observation set perfectly against a back drop of wild grunge fuelled rock n roll, it’s the sound of band that may not be too serious about their music - but who still take music very seriously indeed. It is great introduction to an album full of surprises of both the musical and lyrical variety and one thing is already guaranteed – you will never have heard a rock band quite like Seagull Kinevil before in your life
