Experimentalelectronic folk duo GAPs have been one of the most talked about new bands of recent months, now Brighton based Rachel Butt and Ed Critchley have announced debut album ‘In, Around The Moments’ to be released as a digital download on May 11th followed shortly by a vinyl and CD release.
Latest single ‘All Me, All You’ gives us a taste of what to expect from the LP. In typical GAPs style, the 3 and a half minute piece is built around a simple nursery rhyme style refrain that radiates a feeling of innocence over a backdrop of beguiling, free flowing loops. Unapologetically vunerable touches and an airy feeling that allows music to breathe transforms ‘All Me, All You’ from simple electronica to a captivating synthesis of euphony both man and machine made.
‘All Me, All You’ and ‘In, Around The Moments’ are released May 11th
