Drawing from the visceral 60s and 70s influences on psych-rock, Club Kuru happily fit into the stereotype: noodling guitar solos, jam sessions clouded in sticky smoke and a densely-packed DIY production. The duo of Laurie Erskine and Laurence Hammerton reside in London, but their sound is universal.
Originally formed in the then-sleepy London jazz scene, Club Kuru have taken many a twist and turn to reach their blissed-out Neil Young-meets-stoner-rock sound, fit with clever song writing and a fully-realised live show. This month, they take on the mighty kingdom of Stokes Croft, brimming with tunes from their second album Meet Your Maker, released back in March this year. One music enthusiast on Album of The Year described the record as “groovy, sexy, dope.” What more could you want from a Friday night?
With a line-up of festival performances and headline shows across Europe setting the tone for their 2019 summer, Club Kuru are building the foundations of something pretty special. Now’s the time to catch them before they’re swept up in the furore of industry fandom.
