Artist Of The Week

To say Gurr has been busy as of late, is an understatement. After winning the much coveted IMPALA European Album of the Year Award, fending off The xx, Laura Marling and King Rule, the German duo have toured relentlessly and still found time to continue to write and record. The first taste of the new material can be heard with “Hot Summer,” a single that was conceived on a very grey day in London. Produced by Richard X (Roisin Murphy, Goldfrapp, Kelis), the song is a no–nonsense anti–summer anthem; a perfect antipode to those generic auto–tuned pop songs about dancing and drinking in the sun. Gurr’s Laura Lee and Andreya Casablanca have a full diary this summer as they are set to perform at over 20 European festivals including Rock Am Ring, Melt and Lollapalooza Berlin.
