BandRockAlternative

Gulls is an innovative indie rock band from the Lancaster area of PA. They put on a passionately energetic stage show backed by equally passionate lyrics (taken from Bible stories and reinterpreted). All of the members are experienced and know how to entertain.

Biography

Gulls started in 2007 with a few restless musicians united by a hunger for creative freedom. Over time, the band found their sound and translated the passionate music into an even more passionate live show. Not only does the band deliver an energetic performance, they also go the extra mile to give the stage a certain atmosphere (with an enormous hand-painted kracken banner, authentic nets and full costume).

Gulls draws influence from a wide variety of sources, from Mars Volta to Thrice, along with more underground contemporaries like Saosin and Robbers on High Street. In general, Gulls is influenced by an amalgamation of styles, and the result is a truly unique sound.

Lyrics

The Killers Were Our Own

Written By: Chad Hummel

DADDY LOVED ME MORE THAN ANY
THE YOUNGEST OF TWELVE
YOUR YOUNGEST HAS GROWN
CLOTHED IN COLORS OF MANY
AT THE BOTTOM OF A WELL I FELL
.....in MY DREAMS.....YOU WILL BOW TO ME

JEALOUSY, JEALOUSY, JEALOUSY IN THE FAMILY
JEALOUSY...........SOLD US INTO SLAVERY

HERE I AM

STRIP DOWN
NAKED
OUR BONDS
ARE BREAKING
......DOWN IN A WELL

Drifter

Written By: Chad Hummel

THIS SEA HAS CLAIMED THE LIFE
OF BOTH MEN AND BOAT
AND IF THE BLACK DEEP COULD SPEAK
IT WOULD SHOW ALL ITS BONES

YOU ALWAYS SEEM SO OUT OF REACH
TOSSED BY A WAVE AND I ‘M OUT IN THE SEA ALONE

I SWEAR THAT I HAVE SEEN A GHOST
ASKING ME TO STEP OUT OF THIS BOAT
I’M SINKING IN THIS WATER LORD
WHEN WERE YOUR HANDS REACHING
I’M SINKING IN THIS WATER LORD
WHEN WERE YOUR HANDS REACHING OUT

OUT OF THE BOAT YOU AREN’T SAFE
OUT OF THE BOAT MEN OF LITTLE FAITH
GET OUT,
BECAUSE YOU ALWAYS SEEM SO OUT OF REACH
TOSSED BY A WAVE AND I’M OUT IN THE SEA ALONE
