Ahead of a pair of shows supporting Slowdive and a voyage to Europe, ‘Nausea’ sees the Irish quintet deliver another dose of their uncompromising sonic identity.
A wickedly curated brand of punk-meets-noise-meets-rock, Gurriers are one of the latest talked-about exports from Ireland, and for good reason. Jarring guitar parts crash with fuzzy bass lines, aggressive vocals propelling the tracks into chaos, whilst still retaining a level of accessibility rather than being too off kilter or leftfield. Despite only playing their first show in late 2021, Gurriers have made a bold mark on the post-punk scene.
New single ‘Nausea’, like the title suggests, is three-and-a-half minutes of Gurriers chaos and menace, an alarm-like lead guitar decorating the track throughout, bolstered by incessant drumming and basslines. Flecks of noise rock, not unlike artists like Gilla Band, Unwound and Chat Pile, can be heard in the undertones of this track, a bellicose underbelly to most of Gurriers’ sound.
