The Gallerys are an indie-Britpop trio, situated in Kent and taking the music industry in their grasp with their newest release, “Lucid Trail.” The three-piece is made up of guitarist James, bassist Craig Barden, and drummer Dan Maggs.
Drawing on true Britpop influences like Oasis and The Jam, The Gallerys have played over 200 shows since forming in 2017. The list is endless when it comes to who the rising sixties-rock trio have shared the stage with, including Scouting for Girls, The Blinders, The King Blues, and Louis Berry. Just to top this impressive list off, the band nailed a sell-out headline gig at the Tunbridge Wells Forum in 2018.
“Lucid Trail” has an inviting intro with beautifully in-sync, melodic harmonies rippling for the first two notes. This is a glorious moment where the band’s strong and stylistic vocals are well and truly showcased. Once accompanied by the soft but crisp rhythmic chords of the guitar and the totally raw and real lyrics, the heart is captured and the emotions unfold.
That’s what is incredible about “Lucid Trail”; it sits in the rocking genres of indie and Britpop, but the track is also a sincere and honest admittance to feeling vulnerable. The lyrics are so relatable that you’ll find yourself nodding in agreeance at every other verse. All three musicians blend wonderfully, pathing a busy and successful year ahead for the group.
“Lucid Trail” is a song brilliantly suited to those slow and sunny walks through the park, taking time out to think about what has gone and what’s to come. And for The Gallerys, it’s clear there is so much to come.
