Gibraltar’s songs are tackled with a fearlessness that means each measure is a surprise, filled with gloriously smart riffs and potent lyrical twists.
I read that their mission statement is “taking quiet/loud and making it quieter and louder. and then, doing it again” – which I think means they revel in the Pixies catalog as much as we do, adding to that loud/quiet/loud formula with a camaraderie of edgy energy and boisterous fun that makes each song an anthem.
I haven’t quite picked out a favorite from the EP – but right now the cheer section on “Cold” can’t be beat.

This Saturday at the Sunset, Gibraltar will pull out all the stops to mark the official release of their latest effort – and joining in the party will be Low Hums, VibraGun and Black Ferns – also on the bill.
