Kurran and The Wolfnotes single out September 13th

Kurran and the Wolfnotes release the eagerly awaited single ‘Your Four Limbs’ on September 13th through Chess Club.
A perfect example of how this band have brought an unmistakable noughties twist to the alt-folk sound, with an playful hint of The Strokes complimenting the otherwise straight up trad-sound. New Yorker Kurran Karbal’s faltering, heartbroken croon and textbook Isle of White Festival circa-1968 guitar jangle it’s half medieval minstrel, half basement bar sleaze.

While their sound may lend itself to comparison to a whole host of their contemporaries Kurran doesn’t see his band as a flash in the pan. He’s never more sincere than when he says, “I look and see bands like Radiohead who have amazing discographies and I want to be able to look back in twenty years and say, ‘Yeah, every single one of these albums speaks for a part of my life”
The 5-piece, already with a single release under their belts and recent show-stopping performance at Latitude, plan to tour in September and will be announcing dates soon. In the meantime they are working on their debut album.
