Currently Listening To: Krrum
Stop everything you are doing and put 20-year-old artist and producer Krrum on your radar. 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.
“Evil Twin” 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.
Krumm’s debut EP will follow in March 2016 via 37 Adventures (JONES, Royce Wood Junior, Basement Jaxx).
