We’re delighted to present a new series of free entry shows at the Eagle Inn – with the first featuring London quartet Gaygirl.

Gaygirl make alt-grunge noise-pop, whilst retaining shoegazey undertones. ‘Indie Noir’ has been a term used to describe the emotive, visceral sonic of this female-fronted four piece. For fans of MBV, Radiohead, Nirvana and PJ Harvey – or those who want them all at once – get sent on a journey through the nuances of 90s nostalgia-meets-now with jarring melodies and guttural guitar vibes. Gaygirl have proven themselves to be a tight and dynamic live act on the London gigging scene, supporting the likes of Shame, Sorry and Gabrielle Cohen among many other up-and-coming bands.

‘Fusing messy post punk with hazy shoegaze psychedelia, Gaygirl epitomise brilliantly the concept of “guitar rock”. The looped rolling riffs are amplified by the gory ballsy bass, further amped up by the carelessly raw vocals. Their sound is dark and full of punk undertones, whilst at the same time retaining a trippy pop element’ – Indie Underground
