The Gulps are made up of frontman Harry All, 26, guitarist Charlie Green, 26, Franco Buffone, 23 Simon Mouchard, 23, and Raoul Khayat, 23. The band erupted on the music scene this year with their own brand of power pop that meets Indie Rock. The quintet are based in London but hail from three corners of Europe and the Middle East.

How did the Gulps get together?
After all of us trying our hands at different ventures, we united over a mutual appreciation and ability for high velocity interests that held music at its core. London sounded and the group answered each in their own way, meeting at university and combining their assets to make The Gulps what it is today.
What inspires your performances?
Playfully reviving the original roots of rock and roll, we are a new wake up call and speak our truth, with enjoyment and optimism.
