about

Those Gulls began as a two-member recording project in 2007 with Andrew and Peter. When we recorded our first album together, it quickly became apparent that the sound we were dreaming of was big.

Seven years later, our ranks have expanded to include Kate, Jake, and Kurt. Together, we spent from January to August 2014 recording twelve songs that represent the most complete realization of the music we've long imagined. Drawing together our disparate yet complimentary influences and unifying them in a common thread, the new record titled "Forevermore" surges with energy and a powerful sound that continually reaches ever higher.

We sincerely hope you enjoy it!

Track Name: In Between
You make me want to scream about all the things you should’ve seen
It flows just like a dream: through what's real, what's not, and what's in between
Everywhere we've been, rushes back in shades of blue and green
Leaving us serene, ebbing back and forth we're drifting - along

Common place, common sense
Did the best with what we had
Once condemned, now reclaimed
Strike the match and walk away

Over land, over water
Over mountains to a shelter

You make me want to scream about all the things you should've seen
Just tell us what you mean, with a bit, a piece of everything
It flows just like a dream: through what's real, what's not, and what's in between
Track Name: Change My Mind
All we do is follow
We’re getting more lost without heads
With every pill we swallow
We’ve hollowed, it’s done

If it’s all the same this time
We won’t make it out alive
Watch it as it all unwinds
Load up every gun in sight

And hear the old kings grumble
While they’re lying there in their beds
With every step they’ve stumbled
We’ve crumbled, it’s on

If it’s all the same this time
We won’t make it out alive
Watch it as it all unwinds
Load up every gun in sight

If it’s all the same this time
We won’t make it out alive
Go ahead and change my mind
Go ahead and change my mind
Track Name: On Our Own
Planted countless bends and folds
Not to notice as they grow
But you wait

Lie that we’re not on our own
Then lock the doors, bar the windows
And we wait

Oh you wouldn’t say a word
You wouldn’t say a word
No, you wouldn’t say a word

All for reasons I don’t know
Shout your secrets you don’t own
We can’t wait

Oh you wouldn’t say a word
You wouldn’t say a word
No, you wouldn’t say a word
Track Name: Friday Night
Friday night all alone
Friday night working late
I know it’s not your fault
My Saturday looks great

Friday night sit at home
Friday night watch TV
I’ll pick you up when you get off
And bring you back here with me
Track Name: Carry On
Heaven, I have sinned trying to get in
How am I to win safe entrance?

You must get worn down carrying on like you do
Let something go to gain something new

It’s a long, long way from where I was going
But changes came I had to embrace
When you find yourself down and out I know it
The ending will make you smile
Track Name: Tiger
From the tip of your tail to the stripes on your face
I have caught you in my yard
You bare your fangs and you show your claws
But you mean me no harm
I know

To most you’re prized but to me adored
Camouflaged but not concealed
Tonight we hunt, and tomorrow we feast
And the words form something real
I know

From your den we venture out
Across the galaxy
And beyond
Track Name: Cliffside
There’s been a landslide
And we can’t stop screaming
Track Name: Company Kept
Used to be simple for a walk outside
Now I’m stuck in tornadoes and unsupervised
On a jet to our homeland for a good night’s rest
Pay no heed to the dissent, they will leave when

Bells ring out
So they know we’re home
In our mansions all alone

One voice calls me, beckoning on
Down the spiral staircase on the front lawn
Surely there’s rapture in what happens next
Blackout their party, and then let the

Bells ring out
So they know we’re home
In our mansions all alone
Track Name: From Here
We never had to say let’s not talk about it
Don’t gotta see that hill turn into a mountain
So hurry up and wait and sleep along the way
Sleep along the way

Hear the choir
Sing out higher, louder

Kept a couple wits reaching through the tired
But there would always be another overnighter
Shut your eyes again, and count from one to ten
Forgetting now and then

Hear the choir
Sing out higher, louder

I know we never said let’s not talk about it
Never saw that hill, never saw the mountains
So hard to stay awake so sleep along the way
We slept all of the way

Hear the choir
Sing out higher, louder
Track Name: The Out
There is no crashing, there’s no sound
Right off the backboard we rebound
Can’t get these wires untangled now, tell me how

I’m turning my thumbs round
I’m turning my thumbs like
Cause never, never was I gunning for the in, was I gunning for the out, was I gunning to pin you down
No never, never was I gunning for the in, was I gunning for the out

What’s one more layer to be shed?
What’s one more sign to be misread?
I think you saw me turn my head, nothing said

I’m kicking my heels up
I’m kicking up dirt
Cause never, never was I gunning for the in, was I gunning for the out, was I gunning to pin you down
No never, never was I gunning for the in, was I gunning for the out
Track Name: Alternate Exit
From a height with a view watch the sky alight, all the city’s spires clash against the night
Low growl and hum the roads are overrun, a million senses flood, rise and then they’re gone
Consecrated on the most cursed land, say these words with your hands in our hands
Dedicated to haunt all of you, when we reappear in hot pursuit

Round us up by the wall
Preserved forevermore
Then let us go, let us go
Track Name: After The Storm
Slammed against the cellar door
Gripping to the granite floor
Please try and stop us before we’re washed off shore

Say “a calm comes before the storm” but
This storm has always hung around
Wasted and waiting for someone to talk it down

Are we singing from the same song book?
Upside down and written in Sanskrit
Strangers have come and torn out the pages
Clad in black, strung out and faceless

Sandbags line every street
Evacuated out of reach
Climb atop the tower and signal a retreat

Are we singing from the same song book?
Upside down and written in Hanzi
Places, dates and names are redacted
Stand beside me and we'll find a way passed this

Rise, fold multiply then dive
Make it out alive
