“A full-on galling blues-rock sound that is like a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart”” The 405
Gallery Circus, identical twins Daniel and Graeme Ross, thrash out a full-on galling rock ‘n’ roll sound that is like a shot of adrenaline straight to the heart.
Picked up by Radio One and featured as ‘BBC Introducing’s track of the week’, Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Greg James are amongst their supporters.
Having played a stellar set on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, their performance was included in The BBC’s top 25 ‘Best Of Sunday’ Playlist (amongst such heavyweights as Dolly Parton and Kasabian).
There are no shortage of praise-singers that speak glowingly of Gallery Circus’s insatiable energy in a live setting. Tearing their way through The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, Live at Leeds, Liverpool Sound City, Boardmasters and just about every other UK festival this year, the pair are quickly collecting their converts.
In the words of one half of the duo, the band is largely a collision of British sensibilities with American whiskey. In recent years they relocated to Chicago and then to San Francisco with an aim to write new music and steal their own slice of apple pie. Playing on rooftops, in illegal make-shift venues, on public landmarks – there was no limit for the Ross brothers as they contributed to new rock scenes and acquired quite a following in their adventure.
“As if The Black Keys had burned their Muddy Waters and Leadbelly records and started taking their cues from Muse and Motley Crue, Gallery Circus are revitalising post-grunge rock with their incandescent power chords.” The Tipping Point
