OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
Formed in January 2018, Gecko Club are the ‘exotic beach pop meets surf rock’ outfit you need in your life. Titled ‘Summer 2020’, this summer anthem fuses the sound of Australian indie bands with the youthful scene of the UK. Written last summer in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, this bittersweet track captures the globe’s despair when our summer plans went out the window. Bathed in an optimistic arrangement that feels somewhat bittersweet in places, this genre-bending track refuses to be limited to one specific style. Sitting at over 8,500 monthly listeners on Spotify and over 500,000 streams, Gecko Club are quickly becoming the public’s go-to genre-bending band and ‘Summer 2020’ confirms why.
Highlighting their thoughts on the track, Gecko Club share, “We started writing this song in lockdown last year when we were all feeling pretty down about our plans for the year being cancelled. 2020 was supposed to be the year we set off on our first tour outside of the UK with our mates The Koalaz from Holland, as well as a strong list of festivals we were booked to play at. We kinda had a chat at the start of last year and with everything we had booked, we’re confident it was going to be a big one for Gecko’.
Infusing happy, reggae vibes that will instantly make you feel good, ‘Summer 2020’ will be the soundtrack of the summer. Gaining previous support from Music Crowns, RGM, Little Dose of Indie and Spotify playlists such as Garden Indie and Discover Weekly, you could say that Gecko Club are definitely turning heads. Extroverted and the type of band you turn to when you’re needing a boost, the band’s name originates from a local nightclub in Vale Do Lobo called Gecko Club. Huge fans of the Australian music scene, Gecko Club draw inspiration from the likes of Sticky Fingers, Ocean Alley and Peach Fur.
With live shows on the hopefully near horizon, Gecko Club will be taking to the stage in Cambridge for DSCNNCT Festival, London’s Notting Hill Arts Club, MadNes Festival in Holland, London’s The Fiddler and Leicester’s Firebug throughout the remainder of the year. Destined to be at the front of your list to check out, not only with their studio work but live shows too, Gecko Club will become a household name.
