‘Evil Twin’ is the infectious second track from 20-year-old artist and producer Krrum. Born in the close, sometimes-claustrophobic confines of The Dark Peak, he started writing songs at the age of thirteen, stumbling into his pseudonym whilst working at a butchers. Keen to broaden his horizons, Krrum moved to Leeds to study, where he also became engrossed in the aesthetic and beats of early-Gorillaz, the melancholic songwriting of Justin Vernon, and the eccentricity of Jai Paul.
Among the early results, opening track ‘Morphine’ is an introspective, gently pulsating cut of electro-soul which describes, he says,“struggling to let go of something, even if it’s causing you grief and you know you’d be better off without it.” Lead song ‘Evil Twin’, meanwhile, mixes a blast of brass with infectious, distorted vocals, inspired by all the things about you that you don’t like or regret doing, and personifying that as someone else.”
With ‘Morphine’ also suggesting a strong, visual aesthetic to come, Krumm’s debut EP will follow in March 2016 via 37 Adventures (JONES, Royce Wood Junior, Basement Jaxx).
