Club Kuru are a British five-piece band, fronted by Laurie Erskine. Having recently announced the release of their forthcoming EP ‘Waiting At The Corner‘, the band have today shared another glimpse into what you can expect from the 5-track offering, by way of EP cut ‘Ribbons‘. Listen now via the links below, or watch the official video over on Nowness.

Beginning as Erskine’s solo project, the current, psychedelic incarnation of Club Kuru developed through the process of him searching for his sound; one which truly incorporated his influences and character. Joining forces with Graham Godfrey (co-producer and drummer) and close friends Fergus Ireland (bass), Laurence Hammerton (guitar) and Jess Berry (vocals), in 2016 the group built their own studio in north east London and began their journey as a songwriting and production tour de force. “We really wanted to do everything ourselves. It was a case of laying it all out on the table and seeing what worked.

Collectively, the band cite influences from modern day artists such as Mac DeMarco, Tame Impala and Connan Mockasin, to classic greats including Shuggie Otis, Vangelis, Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones. There’s a summery west coast vibe to their sonic output, mixed with some sleazy Americana, but ultimately the band are spearheading something unique; they’re putting their British take on a US heritage sound – and it works.

The new EP ‘Waiting At The Corner‘ is an introduction to Club Kuru and you can listen to the previously released ‘Giving Inhere. ‘Giving In‘ was premiered on The Line of Best Fit, who said “The track’s a slick tune that lurks somewhere between Mac DeMarco and Frank Ocean, offering dislocation from reality and shivering intimacy.”

Also featuring on the EP are previously released singles ‘Not For Me‘ and ‘Tonight‘, which were championed across BBC Radio 1 and 6Music upon their release last year.

1. Not For Me
