Event Details

Club Kuru are a British five-piece alt-psych-band, fronted by Laurie Erskine and Laurence Hammerton. Following last year’s widely acclaimed EP and single releases, which saw them secure notable support from BBC 6Music and Radio 1 they are now readying the release of their debut LP; Giving In.

The band share eclectic inspiration from classic greats such as Shuggie Otis, Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones. And you will often hear Steely Dan and The Beach Boys humming from within their studio walls. They use and have studied recording techniques from a bygone era, solely using analogue synthesisers and equipment. With musical roots firmly in the jazz and soul traditions they have built a richly textured, flowing, contemporary sound. Their music is characterised by its jerky grooves, mellow, silky vocals and harmonically complex song writing.

Themes of lost love and broken dreams sit gently against a soft, summer backdrop. Ultimately, the sound is unique – it is the product of the band’s bare hands, put together in the space they worked tirelessly to perfect.

Giving In will be released on 23rd March via Absolute.
