Gal Gun stands out from the crowded Chicago garage-rock scene, drawing heavy influences from 90’s behemoths like Weezer and Blur while balancing a softer sound influenced by Belle & Sebastian and The Shins, their sound is equal parts familiar and refreshing.
Offering music and songs like “Heartbleed” obscure their more depressing nature with a slick power pop sheen. Gal Gun hopes to emulate Mancunian bands of the 80’s in their ability to hide a world-weary pessimism amidst a full pop stride and have fun doing it.
Gal Gun Have performed with acts including Naked Giants, Beach Bunny, Rookie, The Slaps, Son of a Gun, Girl K.
Gal Gun’s first offering, “Special Music of Emotion,” was written and recorded across basements and bedrooms throughout Chicago and its suburbs. The personal nature of the recordings is evident in their mid-fi DIY imperfections. The album was released on January 6th, 2018 via local cassette label Dumpster Tapes.
