Who is Gengahr?

Felix Bushe, John Victor, Hugh Schulte & Danny Ward

How would you describe your sound and image of the band?

We began recording our first material around Halloween so it seemed fitting, especially as we’re named after a ghost, that the theme of some of the narratives of songs is quite weird and fantastical.

Who/what do you take inspiration from?

Lots of things. We’re all big into film and art. Big fans of Terry Gillingham and Wes Anderson. We each have varying tastes in music. Anything from Ali Farka Toure to Arthur Russell.

How do you feel about the immensely positive responses you got from your debut album ‘A Dream Outside?’

It came as a surprise to us really. The album process was very much diy, we didn’t really know what we were doing! So to receive such a great response was equally surprising and exciting.

How was touring with Wolf Alice earlier this year?
It’s been our third tour with them! We love those guys to bits so touring with them is always going to be so much fun.
What was the idea behind intimate UK tour?
We thought it was a good time to road test some new material. Also a good time to break up the album recording process. When we’re done we should have a good perspective on which new material is working well.
You’re doing 19 gigs in 23 days, Edinburgh will be your 17th gig in 20 days, how has the reception been?
The reception has been really positive! The response to the new stuff has been really encouraging.
How do you feel about all the great comments you’ve received from Magazines such as NME, Line of Best Fit and Clash?
it’s always great to read positive reviews and comments. Especially from music publications that we know a lot of people will read.
Have you had any time to check out Edinburgh? If yes, what do you think of it?
we played at the Edinburgh Picture House with our old band supporting The Wombats about 6 years ago! We remember loving the city and we’re super excited about coming back.

You’ve been playing some of your new music on tour, what is next for Gengahr? Second album/EP release?

it’ll be a second album. We’re currently in the process of recording it but we want to take time to get it right. We’re very happy with what we have so far and are really excited about showing everybody! Stay tuned…
