Gilmore Trail 'The Floating World' album launch show

+ Awooga

Named after a wilderness trail in remote Alaska recommended for best experiencing the Northern Lights, the post-rock of Sheffield-based quartet Gilmore Trail resonates with an organic, awe-inspiring power that honours their namesake and the secrets of the mysterious cosmic forces it secludes. With a heady mix of influences including Sigur Rós, Oceansize, Explosions in The Sky, King Crimson, This Will Destroy You, Pink Floyd, Intronaut and Buckethead, they’re a serious proposition for any instrumental fans.

With the release of their first EP and debut album (‘Circle of Least Confusion’ and ‘Sailing Stones’ respectively) leading to support slots with Losers, Nordic Giants and China Drum, as well as two headline performances at the 2014 leg of Tramlines Festival, the stage is now set for the group’s anticipated second album – ‘The Floating World’. The album launch will be held at Corporation, with support being provided by the mighty AWOOGA, fresh from their European tour with Amplifier and Knifeworld.

Always seeking to expand what the band would call their “sonic reach”, Gilmore Trail’s nature-inspired soundscapes vibrate and hum with life injected from their enormous range of diverse musical influences. Masterful musical technique and a mind-boggling array of effects pedals all help to create a sound that’s both melancholic and uplifting by turns, often resulting in poignant crescendos that collapse and cascade in wondrously evocative ways.
