Gabi Garbutt & The Illuminations: I Can't Win

The creative process can be a bitch, but keeping at it can pay in spades. Recording I Can't Win, the new single by London's based pop punk band Gabi Garbutt & The Illuminations, was like pulling teeth, but even when the lyrics say otherwise, the track became a winner - and a dead ringer for an encore during their live shows. A low but powerful song powered by a very welcome reappraisal for the sound of vintage synths.

It is a track from their new album, Cockerel, out via Trapped Animal Records (blue and black vinyl). The video was made by Minus Tone.

Live dates:
  • 05/25 The Victoria - Dalston (album launch show), London, United Kingdom (w/ Jeremy Tuplin)
  • 06/30 Bristol O2 Academy, Bristol, United Kingdom (supporting The Libertines)
  • 07/07 Spitalkirche, Pfarrkirchen, Germany
  • 07/08 Zentrum Altenberg, Oberhausen, Germany (w/ Jesse Dayton, Treetop Flyers, The Wreck, Vandoliers, Pete Gow)
