LTW mate and 6music DJ Steve Lamacq sent us a few band tips the other day.

Excitedly in what he feels is a revival in guitar music the list of three band included Essex based four piece Crystal Seagulls who take their Queens Of The Stone Ago infused stoner rock and give it a very English twist.

The band are already on the up with a new band stage appearance at Leeds/Reading this year and their powerful and tight twisted rock music is thrilling and intelligent and very very powerful.

They could be a key part of 2015.
