Ahead of the new Gengahr album, We did a Fugazi cover, hope you like it! Our album is available for pre-order at gengahr.com if you do.

If being doe-eyed came with it’s own personal soundtrack, it would be written by Gengahr, and I mean that as an absolute compliment; the London quartet are like the “Girls” the UK never had. Soft spoken and delicately delivered, Gengahr have just produced an argent take on post-hardcore icons Fugazi’s “I’m So Tired”, which appears on the soundtrack to their Instrument documentary and remains one of the few examples of Ian Mackaye singing an actual melody.

Originally a minimal piano arrangement, Gengahr have drowned the track in a whirlpool of reverb, harmony and topped it off with 30 seconds of rightrous shredding. Somehow, the result is even more wistful than a fed up Ian Mackaye counting proverbial black sheep.

Slated for a June 15th release through Transgressive Records, North London’s Gengahr are pleased to announce their debut album A Dream Outside.

Picking up where 2014 left off Gengahr marked out their intentions for 2015 with an opening slot on Alt-J’s European tour and the release of the gloriously spellbinding ‘She’s A Witch’, which received acclaim from the likes of The Sunday Times, Independent, DIY and NME
