Kurtz present their second album, ‘Made of Waves’ - a record of collaborations with an array of artists from the London scene.
Longtime fans of Frank Turner/Million Dead will be pleased to hear a return to his punk roots on ‘Warren of Thieves’, while the album also boasts the talents of Crushed Beaks’ Matt Poile, brothers Chris & Adam Prendergast (Alex Clare | Lianne La Havas), Liam Lever (LTNT) and former Arrows of Love vocalist Lyndsey Lupe to name but a few. The resulting record is a unique and bold sonic journey through London’s underground rock scene.
Following their debut LP ‘Falcon Frontiers’ (2012 Soundmaker Records), the pair decided to take a wider approach to making music, discarding the restraints of a two-piece by inviting input from friends and associates. As guitarist Fred says, "we wanted to expand upon the notion of what music lovers think a two piece band can achieve".
With production from Tape Op’s Al Lawson (Lower Than Atlantis, Peace) and mastering by the award-winning John Davis (MPG’s Mastering Engineer of the Year 2016, Led Zeppelin, Royal Blood, The Prodigy), this album has been crafted by some of the industry’s finest talents.
