ARTIST OF THE WEEK: GILLBANKS

You may remember this lad from our review of his incredible EP ‘Lend Me Your Skin’ a few weeks ago…well, Sam Gillbanks aka GILLBANKS is back and this time as our ‘Band of The Week’.

GILLBANKS manages to fuse together a blend of genres effortlessly. From Britpop to grunge, GILLBANKS seems to have created the perfect concoction of sounds to bring the 90s back into the 21st century.

Sam’s vocal has that brilliant British element to it whilst also sounding weirdly reminiscent of Matt Schultz’ (Cage The Elephant) gritty rock and roll vocal.

Having hid himself away in the coastal town of Falmouth, GILLBANKS ended up with a host of tremendous songs – five of which made it to his fantastically grunge-infused EP ‘Lend Me Your Skin’.

Now based in London, Sam is regularly performing the live circuit and picking up new followers everywhere he goes. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the young lad in 2016.

‘Lend Me Your Skin’ is out now via Tusk Records.
