Video Clip of the Week: Eagulls, “Tough Luck”



Hello and welcome to the first entry in a full year of Worleygig.com’s Video Clip of the Week. It’s good to be back! This week we have a hard-to-top clip from Leeds UK-based Eagulls for the amazing song, “Tough Luck” — which I am am already in love with. Visually, we have live performance footage of the band diffused with a mix of black and white animation that includes images of biological cell division! Intriguing! Full of chiming guitars, driving drums and completely unintelligible lyrical delivery, “Tough Luck” manages to be both dark and exhilarating at the same time; not unlike Killing Joke crossed with Echo and The Bunnymen (comparisons to The Cure and Joy Division have been made elsewhere, so I know I’m not offtrack with that observation. Certainly, The Cure’s “Jumping Someone Else’s Train” springs immediately to mind). Without giving away the “surprise,” Eagulls‘ frontman, George Mitchell reveals that the song portrays “the gamble of trusting in something without knowing the true consequences.” This band is fucking awesome. Eagull’s self-titled debut album is due for release on March 4th, 2014 via Partisan Records, so watch out for that. In the meantime, Enjoy!
