Review: Green Man

Live Review: Eagulls – Leeds

Eagulls at Brudenell Social Club, Leeds. Words: Rianne Kate Thompson Eagulls released their second LP Ullages on Friday 13th May, a brave move some superstitious believers might say but there was nothing unlucky or unsuccessful at the band’s album release show. The five-piece played to a sold out gig at Leeds Brudenell Social Club. The…
