...CUR$ES!

There are exceptions to everything of course, but in all honesty, electronic music is not usually my thing.  That being said, it's not as bad as hip-hop.  Don't get me started on that!  With this in mind, it's slightly worrying that I find the hip-hop influenced electronic release from CUR$ES right up my street.  Here's a wee taster...


Without much further ado, I asked the man behind the music, and the rather fetching jumper, a few questions...

Kowalskiy:  Who is CUR$ES?
Niall:  My name is Niall Morris and I'm a 19 year old student from Glasgow. CUR$ES is the name I've given to the music I've been producing this year.  Soon, CUR$ES will also be a live band consisting of myself and 3 others performing these songs from a live perspective.

Kowalskiy:  How would you describe 'your sound'?
Niall:  "My sound" can probably be categorised as "electronic music", but it's not really dance/club music. I'm a laptop musician with a background in live music. I listen to a lot of hip-hop and I think that has an influence on my productions.

Kowalskiy:  Plug Away!
Niall:  My album "Solar Temple" is out for free just now via Bandcamp, I keep everything updated from Facebook.

Kowalskiy:  What can we expect from you in the future?
Niall:  I'm starting to work on a new EP which I'll again give out for free, but my main focus is on the CUR$ES live band. I'm going to try out playing both club sets and gig slots but I'm not sure which will work out better.  I also have a remix of the new LaFontaines single "Paperchase" coming out next week, they exist online here.

Solar Temple is out now for FREE.   If you like your electronic music with a wee bit of a dark, moody, atmospheric twist, then you'll lap it up.  Go get your copy, and keep your eyes out for gig updates from Niall.
