One of the joint Acoustic Originals winners of last year’s longstanding Horsham Battle of the Bands has, this week, released two singles this month as part of their prize for winning.
Worthing based local favourites The Golgis came joint first in their category alongside Liam Carter at The REC Rooms final in August. Having claimed their recording prize at Audiobeach Studios, Brighton, the fruits of their labour ‘It’s Still a Hoover’ and ‘Eat Your Own Brain’ are out today!
A spokesperson for The Golgis said: “We’ve developed a small following around the Horsham area over the last couple of years so thought we’d enter Horsham Battle Of The Bands. It’s a chance to play on a big stage with great sound and an enthusiastic audience. We really thought we had no hope of winning – the fact we did proves the judges aren’t age prejudiced (we’re knocking on a bit). The excellent prize of a days recording and single release, plus a professional photo shoot (which we haven’t got round to yet) is pretty much what every original band strives for. You could say we’re pleased we entered!”
The two singles are available to stream and buy on all digital platforms including Spotify, Apple Music and Deezer. The band have also released an accompanying video for ‘It’s Still a Hoover’ which can be found by visiting: https://www.facebook.com/
