For the last decade, Gilmore Trail have been making music both unassumingly epic and simmeringly cinematic. Harnessing elements of post-rock to space-rock, alternative to the progressive the band have gleaned inspiration from the catalogues of Oceansize, This Will Destroy You, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Mogwai, Intronaut Buckethead and beyond, yet with a resultant sound theirs alone.
Making their mark with their 2013 debut ‘Sailing Stones’, the band have charted a course of their choosing and a pace of their own definition. With two albums, an EP, plus a reworking of themes from the TV show Twin Peaks to date, the band have earned something of a cult following, while also receiving praise from mainstream media including Clash, Rocksound, Prog Magazine, Now Then, plus spins on the likes of BBC 6Music and BBC Introducing.
A formidable live prospect, the Trail have delivered captivating performances at the likes of ArcTanGent Festival (2017) and Tramlines Festival, taken in two UK headline tours, and even three weddings.
Named after a passage in Alaska – a route recommended for best experiencing the Northern Lights; the band have earned a reputation for the atmospheric and transcendent, with their latest work, ‘Impermanence’, set to continue that blazing trail.
Gilmore Trail are David Ivall and Danny Mills on guitars, Joe Richards on bass and Bob Brown on drums.
