Super Furry Animals bassist Guto Pryce is set to release the debut album from his new band Gulp this summer, today airing its very nearly title-track “Seasoned Sun”.

BEST FIT PREMIERE​Encapsulating the psych-tinged but pop-leaning hallmarks of his other outfit, the single centres not around Gruff Rhys’ signature drawl but instead singer Lindsey Leven’s irresistible vocals. You can take a listen to “Seasoned Sun” right now below.

“We wanted to make a sunshine pop record,” says Pryce of the LP. “Happy vibes, get people smiling and dancing”, while Leven adds: “In a world where everyone seems so busy and caught up in technology, it’s a reflection of the simple things in life: dreaming of living self-sufficiently in the countryside, the beauty of watching plants grow and thinking of just how these simple things can be so pleasurable in a world that can be full of angst.”

Pryce and Leven are joined in the band by guitarist Gid Goundrey and former Race Horses drummer Gwion Llewelyn. Season Sun will be released via Sonic Cathedral on 14 July.

Gulp play the following live dates:

10 - Shacklewell Arms, London [Tickets]
16 - Clwb Ifor Bach, Cardiff [Tickets]
