Gengahr have posted a video for Before Sunrise, the lead single of their upcoming sophomore LP.

'Where Wildness Grows', the follow up to 2015's 'A Dream Outside', will arrive on March 9 via Transgressive Records. 

The video, meanwhile, was filmed in Casablanca by director Jamie Whitby and features teenage moped gang the Anfa Riders. Speaking about it, Whitby said:

“This one's super special for me - the culmination of multiple trips to Morocco and months of WhatsApp chats in very dodgy French trying to convince the Anfa Riders to let this weird guy from London come and shoot with them. Huge thanks to the the guys  for having us and a big shout out to our local fixer Karim El-Amri and my amazing tiny crew - Sorcha, Jack, and Ruben - who somehow made it all happen in one of the maddest cities in the world.”

Alongside the video, Gengahr have announced the second edition of their Gengahr Gallery, following the 2015 debut event. The exhibition will run between March 14 and 20 at A-Side B-Side in Hackney, London and will feature original artwork from the band’s bassist Hugh Schulte, alongside pieces from members of Slaves, Alt-J, Toothless and Puppy.

The London-based quartet will follow up the record's release with a UK tour, which will include a show at KOKO in London. Check below for dates.

Hop Along - Bark Your Head Off, Dog (Album Review)
Thu 12 Apr 2018
Photo: Tonje Thilesen When confronted with an empty canvas, there’s always a temptation to fill every inch of it; to purge yourself of ideas, to remake and remodel. On their second album, ‘Painted Shut’, Hop Along didn’t have that option. Their time in the studio came with a full stop attached to it, so they had to work fast and clean. The dense, layered approach of their debut, ‘Get Disowned’, was set aside in favour of economical indie-rock songs that had the happy byproduct of pushing their melodies, and Frances Quinlan’s remarkable voice, to the fore more than ever before.
The Shires - Accidentally On Purpose (Album Review)
Thu 26 Apr 2018
It’ll rather be amusing if anyone accuses the Shires of selling out to the world of American pop-country on their third album. The British duo were clearly edging further in that direction on 2016’s ‘My Universe’ anyway, so it only took a small step for Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes to fully embrace that style and deliver ‘Accidentally on Purpose’, a fine album that’s tailor-made to crack the US market.
Speedy Ortiz - Twerp Verse (Album Review)
Thu 03 May 2018
Photo: Shervin Lainez ‘Foil Deer’, Speedy Ortiz’s 2015 album, cemented their place as a band who are always worth listening to. Sadie Dupuis constantly has her head on swivel, picking anecdotes that on closer inspection veer away from the autobiographical and into the universal.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Sex & Food (Album Review)
Wed 18 Apr 2018
Photo: Neil Krug A simple glance at the tracklisting would lead you to think that ‘Sex & Food’, the fourth album by Unknown Mortal Orchestra, is intently focused on the political context in which it was born. Ours is a world of technological turmoil and political pandemonium, and more than half of the song titles here scream of a critical appraisal of our current climate.
Manic Street Preachers - Resistance is Futile (Album Review)
Wed 25 Apr 2018
After dragging themselves out of the doldrums with 2007’s ‘Send Away The Tigers’, Manic Street Preachers released a string of superb records that were often brave, creatively single-minded and indicative of a band still bursting with ideas. But what goes up must come down. Their new LP, ‘Resistance is Futile,’ may offer a return to their anthemic mid-’90s sound, but it’s a hit and miss affair that sees a winning run finally come to an end.
Blossoms - Cool Like You (Album Review)

Did you hear the one about the band who recorded two versions of their second album, and then released the wrong one?
Okkervil River - In the Rainbow Rain (Album Review)
Mon 30 Apr 2018
Okkervil River’s Will Sheff has long been known for his bleak outlook on life. The places his songs frequented seemed dark and dangerous, while rock music was going to be the death of him. That came to a climax with 2016’s ‘Away’.
Eels - The Deconstruction (Album Review)
Thu 12 Apr 2018
The term ‘auteur’ is derived from cinema criticism, and describes a director whose personal vision can be seen in every part of their films; from script, to music, to set design, and so on.
