Kulk’s debut LP ‘Here Lies Kulk’ is heavy and noise filled, falling somewhere between The Melvins and Fuzz. The album will launch early June.
This album sees Suffolk based duo, Jade Ashleigh and Thom Longdin, better known as Kulk, move away from faster hard rock riffs to something more doom infused. It’s equally chaotic as it is constant. There’s great weight in the barrages of guitar and drum blows that are only pierced by the distorted guttural screams. Themetically the album explores topics of morality, conflict and rawness.
They’re not to be missed at their live shows either with energy that could bring down the roof and noise that actually does, you can expect a brutal and sweaty show of power. Kulk have begun carving a path for their first monolithic sonic step.
The album was recorded at Rum Records locally in Ipswich on half inch tape in true fuzz style with the band taking an active roll in the production of the album.
“Making this record has been about simplicity, in its rawness and rudimental nature. Sometimes the most complicated thing is how simply it comes together.” – Jade
Coverage of their acclaim has since came from Outline, Anti-Despair Machine, Echoes and Dust, Down The Front Media, with radio plays from IORadio, BBC Introducing Suffolk and Future Radio as well as Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music).
