about

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.

Track Name: White Knuckles (feat. Liam Lever)
White Knuckles bleeding into the dust
Cherry red and rough as rust just
Fill my arms with
All the goods that you can
Fill our hearts with
Supply and demand

Overtime eating into your life
Fading looks going under the knife just
Fill my arms with
All the goods that you can
Fill our hearts with
Supply and demand

Medication brought to chill your brain
It’s hard work in a losing game
Fill my arms with
All the goods that you can
Fill our hearts with
Supply and demand

You want love and you want it for free
But sex sells from behind the screen
Fill my arms with
All the goods that you can
Fill our hearts with
Supply and demand
Track Name: Warren of Thieves (feat. Frank Turner)
Oh come on, we had a deal
You take the high road while I get high
I wasn't asking for much of it, but still you had to steal
You take the lights and I'll take what's mine

You have the face of middle England
I have the face of a dog
I have the dirty ears of the unwashed
You have the ear of your god
Your saviour's a man of expensive taste
Which always struck me as odd
More at home in your mullioned mansions
Than down here in our mud

Beneath the marble and limestone
We built a warren of thieves
Beneath the sangfroid and cynicism
We whispered things that we mean
Beneath the thread needle three piece suits
We made our clothes out of leaves
Beneath the things that you wanted us to be
We've been the people we've been

Take it, it's yours
We won't act surprised
The world wasn't something we wanted

We found a nation underneath your foundations

Plant a fucking flag
Sanctify the dead
Fill the barrels with (dead) flowers
This one, this one is ours

Build a home for the lost and the forlorn
In the gap between the train and the platform
Leave the lions share for the lions
There are many like it but this one is mine
Track Name: Wolverley Edge (feat. Tom Rhyland)
Hey little Mary with the cemetery eye
She's gonna ride a rusty elevator into the sky
All along the thirteenth floor
She's dragging a broken jaw and naked polaroid
A heavy disguise

When I was born I was seeing double
When I was born I was seeing double
When I was born I was seeing double
When I was born I was seeing double

Rank little narcissists, right wing apologists
Corporate ventriloquists and neo liberal counterfeits
I get so sick of all their posturing and bullshit
While secret predators pose as national treasures
Perpetual interns on another smooth endeavour
It's clandestine it's clever, oh well whatever
Pathological liars and lifestyle gurus with high anxiety and daddy issues Tell me

When I was born I was seeing double
When I was born I was seeing double
When I was born I was seeing double
When I was born I was seeing double

I am the curator of the abyss
You are the cannibal
I am a servant to the wilderness
Lost in the capital
Little Mary was a fortune hunter
A shadow lover from a world unseen
A cloak and dagger as the fools all staggered
Into the honeytrap, into the dream

Panoptic apparitions of the utopian dream
Little Mary's got a secret that whispers through her teeth
She says “We’ve all been suffocated and over saturated
and all these big ideas and blind belief are overrated
Oh look! Oh watch me as I climb on up the ladder
Overexposed and analysed and jumping at my shadow
Falling straight into the gallows with these friendly little fellows
Everybody’s got a story, Everybody’s got to swallow"
Track Name: Colossal Squid (feat. Chloe Askew)
Colossal Squid the only one
Fought so hard but never won
We’ve only found defeat
of you fighting in the deep

Colossal scars across the back
of the only thing which you attack
Blue whale king of the sea
is your only enemy

Sail Away

Captain saw the sky turn black
Dead ahead they can’t turn back
He shouted "Let em be"
"They’re the giants of the sea"

Afraid blue whale vs colossal squid
Thrashed and crushed, capsize the ship
Captain never thought they’d be
Just a sunken mystery

Sail away
Track Name: Wave (feat. Lyndsey Lupe & Matt Nolan)
Light fades to the west
Through the mist I see
Down the road bends
All my friends away
Waves take me away

It’s the confidence that has left you
Then It’s my everyday never ending
It’s the always by your side
Now It’s the changing of the tide

I have made my boarder
I have stood my ground
I will fight for everyday
I will work, yes I will work

You will search, but you can’t find me
You will search, but I’ve moved on
I have moved to a tower
Now I’ll move to the sky
