Eagulls have been quite clever in naming their sophomore album Ullages; ullages is an anagram of Eagulls, it looks like a bad phonetic spelling of the word eulogies – which would be fitting given the record’s tone – and the definition of ullage, the amount by which the contents fall short of filling a container, is itself fitting with the album’s content.  Sonically the Leeds quintet have shifted away from the boisterousness of their 2014 self-titled release applying their talents to crafting bleak, post-punk, atmospherics in a manner that the English seem to excel at – insert trite quip about their music matching their weather.
