Let's get beautiful
Let's Get Beautiful recalls the passion and the afterglow of 80's punk/new wave and vintage hard rock with soaring, anthemic choruses, pulsing piano and the angular guitar buzz of 90's Alternative. Masterfully modern, gorgeously nostalgic, with a
hook-laden power that drives the listener to dance.
Gibraltar explore the harmonic vision of bands like Television and
Built To Spill, using the sonic, gender and emotional situations of Lou Reeds' "Transformer" as inspiration. Founding member Aaron Starkey created Gibraltar to seek out what he didn't know about himself, finding catharsis in the search.
Let's Get Beautiful was written by Gibraltar (except Track 6. Written by Morrissey & Johnny Marr). Recorded and mixed by Matt Bayless at Red Room Recording. Mastered by Ed Brooks at Resonant Mastering. Album art by Tim Manthey.
