2019 Horsham Battle of the Bands winners, Worthing-based The Golgis are releasing two January singles.
One of the joint Acoustic Originals winners of last year’s contest, they are bringing the singles out as part of their prize for winning.
Having claimed their recording prize at Audiobeach Studios, Brighton, they now go public with the fruits of their labours – It’s Still a Hoover and Eat Your Own Brain – on January 17.
Singer Tony Whiting said: “We’ve developed a small following around the Horsham area over the last couple of years and so we 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 day’s 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 will be 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 here: https://www.facebook.com/thegolgis/
