Back with their first single of the year, Kent trio The Gallerys say it’s brighter ‘On the Other Side’.

Combining 60s rock and Britpop, the outfit offer a refreshing side to the genre with new wave influences to the likes of Louis Berry and The Blinders.

‘On the Other Side’ is an alternative indie rock track written about forgetting your problems by having a good time as Craig Barden explains.

“The ‘Other Side’ is that place we all know and feel when we’ve had a few drinks and feel invincible. When we’re in that good place we have a ‘rosy gaze’ on and forget about all the problems and issues of our everyday lives but we’re actually just ‘living in the land of lies.'”

Written by Craig, it was arranged by The Gallerys and recorded at Squarehead Studios in Sittingbourne, Kent. It was also engineered and mixed by James Simpson, and mastered by Kristofer Harris.

The band’s debut EP Lucid Trail was a great success when released in December last year and the band have been busy playing shows up and down the country – including an ICM Presents show at The Finsbury Pub, London, in April – whilst getting into the studio to lay down some new tunes.
