Culk (Album) LP/CD order
On relationships, power structures and the unspoken. In-between timelessness and the Zeitgeist, CULK are releasing their self-titled debut album.
The young ensemble from Vienna astonishes with unexpected alluring moments of suspense and melodic breaks — torn between meditative trance, exuberant essence and pure ecstasy.
Distorted sounds, edgy guitars and rhythmic patterns reminiscent of Psychedelic Rock and 60ies Nonchalance à la Velvet Underground are mixed with hints of Shoegaze and Post-Punk. The result: An engaging album that’s shrouded in shivering atmosphere — comforting yet tense, welcoming yet challenging, accessible yet complex. An intricate record that reveals itself progressively with each listen.
Songs such as “Begierde/Scham”, “Faust” or “Velvet Morning” are going to evoke a tranquilizing thrill that follows through the entire output and will showcase the great potential these four sophomore musicians have.
