KRRUM

Leeds-based producer Alex Carrie is Krrum; creating hip hop-influenced electronic music with a deep soulful warmth and emotional core. Having made a big splash releasing ‘Morphine’ and ‘Evil Twin’, which topped both the Shazam and Hype Machine charts, Krrum played Pitchfork Paris, Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Lovebox festivals as a four-piece band, with Harrison (guitar, vocals), Charlie Webb (drums) and Thomas Trueman (keys) expanding Krrum’s human touch. Now debut album Honeymoon is simply a brilliant debut, music for the heart, soul and mind.

“The brainchild of producer Alex Krrum, their inspired incantation blends everything from pop, electronic indie, dance beats and heavy synth-bass into a glorious melting pot” Skinny

“High octane, quirky, distorted romp” Skinny

“Avant pop with an R&B twist, the distorted sense of electronics was matched to a real melodic flair” Clash

PEARL CITY

Pearl City exists in an other worldly place where melancholic pop music reigns supreme and the future’s not so desolate. Formed by duo Nick & Greta in Manchester, their debut track ‘Flames’ is the opening portal for a parallel world they’ve created, and a temporary respite from the industrial and politically oppressed world that surrounds them; “Pearl City to us is otherworldly – a fantasy place. The music takes us to an alternative realm where we can escape from reality, making our own soundscapes for them to occur there” state Nick & Greta.

Pieced together from a range of live instrumentation, studio trickery, field recordings, obscure instruments (including the Guzheng and Steel Pan), alongside a more typical combo of synthesisers, effects units and drum machines, their take on avant-pop dips between glacial vocal arrangements, electronic pulses and phantom echoes. It recasts a love for Bjørk, Arca and dystopian anime flicks into a mould that’s entirely it’s own – future pop music for a new virtual world.
