The start of 2017 saw the release of "Paisley", a three track EP which has been met with critical acclaim, putting The Gallerys on the map.
The Gallerys have achieved BBC Radio Kent and BBC introducing airplay, been endorsed by Merc, Art Gallery and Lambretta clothing in recognition of their hard working attitude when it comes to music.
"These guys are amazing for their age" Mark Morriss, Ex Bluetones
"Highly recommended, drawing influence from the classic British 3 minute pop songs of the 1960s, serving them with Britpop Swagger!" Merc Clothing
"Sound very much like Oasis and The Verve, but they're brand new" Abbie McCarthy, BBC Introducing
The Gallerys story has only just begun...
