Spotlight: Gorilla Punch Radio

Gorilla Punch Radio are an exciting new alternative rock band from Leeds. The band describe their music as containing ‘colossal guitar riffs, gritty vocals and lyrics about standing up in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds’.

The band was formed by guitarist and singer Paul James, at the end of 2014, after extensively touring with bands such as The Struts and The Pigeon Detectives.

Their debut single No Retreat is available on 7th August via iTunes. The track was mixed by revered engineer/producer Elliot Vaughan, whose previous clients include Pulled Apart by Horses and Frank TurnerNo Retreat is a punchy, explosive track, that is likely to make you start head banging and punching your fists in the air.

The song explores ‘the gritty realities of standing up in the face of seemingly overwhelming odds’, whilst the lyrics inspire you to be courageous and face up to the harsh realities of life.

We’re really excited about this song as it has taken a while to craft and perfect. Elliot has successfully captured the energy of Gorilla Punch Radio in this recording, and we can’t wait to share it with everybody!” – Paul James of Gorilla Punch Radio.
