Gilla Band have shared the new single, “Post Ryan”, off their upcoming album “Most Normal” out October 7th via Rough Trade.

The video was directed by Michael Speed.

Dara Kiely (singer) shared this about it: “Our friend Ryan turned 30 during lockdown and we were asked by his mates to make a track for his birthday. We wrote and recorded ‘Happy Birthday Ryan’ (a hair metal attempt penned by our secret Hard Rock alias, The Whisky Guns). Right after that we came up with the bones of what is now known as ‘Post Ryan’. This probably took the longest time out of all the tracks. The words of the track were originally really silly. There’s was a line about wearing Christmas socks all year round. Stupid stuff. It didn’t really fit the tone. After messing around with the Electro Lobotomy and getting the second half of it figured out, I improvised a melody over it. The lads wanted me to get out of my comfort zone and write something really direct. This was the exact opposite of the approach we had for ‘The Talkies’. Felt very naked. I had to leave the room when I showed them my demo of the new vocals.”

The band will head out on their USofA tour:
