I love The Gulps. I’ve seen them twice live, at Camden Rocks and supporting Weekend Recovery in London. What blew me away was their swagger and their love for Britpop and the spirit of the 60s. ‘My Girl From Liverpool’ is from their recent EP, ‘In the King’s House’. I love it because it’s a soaring power-pop anthem with beautiful lyrics.
The song is a nostalgic ode to what we no longer have and lost memories. I think the gritty guitars boost the impact of the song because they represent the band’s punk attitude. As a result, they capture energy when you see them live. The drums pound with a sense of urgency that makes you want to jump. The vocals are captivating. The song has an attitude that makes you want to listen over and over.
