It may have been this year that Gulp released their debut album, but Super Furry Animals man Guto Price and vocalist Lindsey Leven have been making music under this guise for a few years. It was the summer of 2012 that saw the release of their debut single 'Game Love', a song that was somewhat overlooked at the time. Given the extra promotion that comes with an LP which gets smothered by glowing reviews, it's a wise choice to spread the word of this magical highlight a little further and put the track out there again.
Essentially, 'Game Love' is what it sounds like to be gently floating through space (possibly, I haven't been myself). A basic, ticking motorik beat slowly introduces us to the mild hum of electronics and vocals woozy enough to drive Liz Fraser to jealousy. A bobbing bassline reminiscent of early Spiritualized is another splendid touch as real drums enter the fray and add even more depth to the intricacy. It's customary to begin a new year with resolutions and dreams of doing little things to improve your life, and in 'Game Love' Gulp have delivered the soundtrack to the very best of dreams.
