Boston, Massachusetts’ indie-pop makers Gentlemen Hall have given us a summer-esque single to fall in love with, Sail into the Sun. In a recent interview, AMBY had the chance to catch up with the sextet to talk about going surfing, a Mowgli’s remix, a sickly obsession for a TV show, and more. Have a read below:
AMBY: Hello Gentlemen Hall, cheers for speaking to AMBY. How’s the band doing today?
Gentlemen Hall: We are working on a Mowgli’s remix that we are really excited about so the mood is very pepped up in the houseeee.
AMBY: What have been some of the tour’s highlights?

Gentlemen Hall: We keep playing better shows and havig more fun doing it. There were a few peak shows we played on our last tour.. Particularly in San Diego and San Fransisco. Nothing compares to rocking a great show to fans that are giving you the energy right back!
