Premiere: Gilmore Trail – ‘Memories Of Redfern’

Check it out now...

For all its reputation as being an arid, overtly cerebral genre, post-rock isn't half-emotional at times.

Based in Sheffield, Gilmore Trail are a four who specialise in sweeping, impossibly grand instrumental statements; soundscapes that aim to capture the awe, the sheer beauty of nature.

Named in honour of a trail in Alaska, the band released their debut album back in 2013. Work on a follow up is well under way, with Clash now able to unveil a preview.

'Memories Of Redfern' is reminiscent of Mogwai at their most intense, Explosions In The Sky at their most grandiose.

Opening in near silence, Gilmore Trail allow the song to build and build – all guitar chaos around a subtle piano refrain, studio effects around a tightknit unit.
