New Entry: Gallus Release New Single "Eye to Eye"

Glasgow indie rock/punk band Gallus have released their new single "Eye to Eye".

Speaking about it, Guitarist Eamon Ewins says: “The song was written coming up for a year ago. Barry and I sat down to write the lyrics about how polarised society was becoming in the run up to the General Election, but then as we got closer to lockdown we saw how the pandemic was polarising people even further. We’ve seen all the various injustices that have all been exacerbated by the current crisis. The complete and utter failure of people to work towards common interests and goals when power or money is at stake. That’s why we chose to put a wee half verse in that explicitly acknowledged the pandemic.” 

“We first demoed the song with our pal Blair Crichton of Dead Pony, and he brought a lot of cool ideas that ended up on the final cut we recorded at 7 West with Johnny Madden and Chris Marshall. It was initially recorded in November 2019 but it hadn’t been performed live at that point so we went back in to finesse it in mid March after we properly got a feel for the song in front of an audience. We’re really lucky to have a lot of talented people outside the core 5 members of the band work with us. There’s nothing wrong with cooperating and collaborating as nothing exists in true isolation, which at the heart of it is what the song is about.”
