Released 27 May, The Gulps’ upcoming second single, “King of the Disco” is a bubbling petri-dish of rock, pop and disco influences that pulsates with a raucous, live-ready energy and an all-out party atmosphere.
With its beats and grooves overseen by the legendary Danny Saber (Black Grape) on mastering, the resultant track is a swirling indie-disco earworm landing just in time for manic summer nights under flashing lights and Dyonisian blow-outs on sticky dancefloors.
Inspired by post-Covid craziness and the exhilaration of being set free from lockdown, frontman Javier Sola says of the single:
“King of the Disco” is about instigating partying, hedonism and chaos and losing control. Everyone was sporadically locked up over the last two years, so this track is about celebrating the moment you were allowed onto the dancefloor again; dictating craziness, and spitting euphoria and absolute mania.”
Confident and heady with an infectious dance undercurrent enough to tip any room on its head, the single arrives in the wake of the quintet’s recently signed publishing deal with Mike Smith and Downtown Music.
Ready to take the summer airwaves by storm, “King of the Disco” arrives as the thrilling follow-up to ‘”Stuck In The City“, a single which has already seen The Gulps earn key support from the likes of BBC Radio 6 and Radio X and many more.
