Two Gallants / Press

“A band that cribs its name from a James Joyce story are always going to attract a certain level of disdain; but get past their clever-clogs appellation and there’s a deeply wrought cask of oak-lined Americana-blues. Sounding like the missing link between wailing Jack/monged Meg and Ol’ Dirty Beard Banhart, songs like ‘You Losin’ Out’ and ‘Fail Hard to Regain’ are stomping rackets that have the demeanour of a hard-drinking song and the heart of a hopeless romantic. Stating their influences as ranging from San Francisco punk-rockers Operation Ivy through to backcountry stalwarts in the mould of Skip James and Clarence Ashley, Two Gallants understand just how much bite to add to their Southern-stew without it losing its distinctive texture; a sweat-blues gumbo that could have just as easily emerged from New Orleans or Seattle. Throw down!”
