Free Download – Curxes – “Further Still”

30 Mar


Showcasing their softer side, blog world favourites Curxes have kicked off their 2013 with something of a surprise. Having earned something of a reputation for their excitingly angular and industrial blitz-pop, all metallic and grindy like loads of blacksmiths at work at once, they have returned with a track that has seemingly stepped out of the forge and into the daylight. Well, not entirely.

“Further Still” begins with some operatics, but Andrea Bocelli this is not. It is more like the kind of slightly sinister opera sounds you’d have coming out over the PA during morning exercise at a Stepford holiday camp. Rictus smiles and unnecessarily bright and scary colours all around you. This lasts but a moment though before Roberta’s vocals take over and blend with the suddenly more liquid sound of Curxes. Dark, emotional and subtle, it whispers where you might expect a roar, even as the drama is ramped up it tip-toes. It is scalpel rather than sledgehammer to the walnut of our ears.

“Further Still” is available for free download here.
