Club Kuru have shared a video their new single 'Film Credits'. Following on from the release of ‘Cherry Bloom’ and 'By The Windowpane' earlier this year, which earned plaudits from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Clash, The i The Most Radicalist, BBC Radio 1 and more.
Both singles are taken from the band's new highly anticipated sophomore album 'Meet Your Maker', which was announced on 5th March.
Following on from the band’s critically acclaimed 2018 debut LP ‘Giving In’, which featured their BBC 6 Music B-listed single, ‘The Memory Junkie', the duo’s new material sees them further explore their multifarious and eclectic sound, developing new textures and further pushing the boundaries of their meticulous and far-reaching brand of psych-pop.
Speaking about the single, Erskine says: "Laurence and I had an interesting loop going in the studio and we thought it sounded a bit like the ending credits to an old film. We stumbled upon a unusual verse and the whole thing slotted together rather quickly. It had a romantic, meandering quality that we stuck with, and that became the chorus to the song which we named ’Film Credits’. I based the verse lyrics on a conversation from Mike Leigh’s 1993 film, Naked, in which David Thewlis’s character, Johnny, talks about the universe and about all time stretching both back and forward."
Going on to speak about the accompanying video, directed by Will Dohrn, Erskine says " When I played the tune to our friend Will (Dohrn), who had previously made a music video for our track, Ribbons, he immediately got into it. We focused on Carl Jung’s idea of ‘the shadow’ and the duality of man. Using a mirror strapped to the camera at all times, we followed two actors, one in the foreground and one in the background. The second character, the shadow, follows the first character hauntingly. The first character tries to escape his shadow but of course he never can."
Having recently completed a short run of dates with Jungle, Club Kuru are also planning a number EU/UK headline dates for May 2019 - full dates below. The band will be announcing further details in the coming months.
