Gilmore Trail Short Info

Gilmore Trail are a 4-piece instrumental rock band based in Sheffield. The band is named after a trail in Alaska - a route recommended for best experiencing the Northern Lights. Their music has a post-rock edge, with a mix of influences including Sigur Rós, Oceansize, Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, King Crimson, God is an Astronaut, Pink Floyd, Intronaut and Buckethead.

They recorded their first EP - “Circle of Least Confusion” - at 2Fly Studios in Sheffield in October 2011. This led to repeated airplay on BBC Radio Sheffield, and featuring in Exposed Magazine’s In Session section, with a 2-page spread in the magazine and a live session recorded and filmed for their website. The band have been building up their gigging experience in the city and further afield over the last few years, including two headlining slots at Tramlines festival in 2014.

In January 2013, the first full-length album was released, entitled "Sailing Stones". Again recorded at 2Fly Studios, this record expanded on the themes and groundwork laid by the first EP. It was nominated for Best Album by Sheffield Scenester, alongside a Best EP nomination for "Circle of Least Confusion".
