Coming on like the sound of two lusty robots f*cking, Haunted Gold the new single by UK dark electronic-pop starlets in the making Curxes bursts forth from its cage like a pent up animal. An endorphin cloaked rage of industrial electronic and rock music it’s the south coast groups most aggressive sounding piece to date, as beats and words spit and clank against each other with furious abandon. Then, just as you think the band have been listening to a little too much electro-goth there’s whistling. Yes you read that right. Whistling. Followed by, after the last sequence of whistles, what we can only assume is Roberta having a quivering orgasm. If that all sounds a bit too much, it really isn’t; it’s a pitch-black seducer that we just can’t get enough of.
“Two words danced around in grey matter and bridged the gap between the volatile year that passed into history and the present day. The festival suitor with the busted shoes. Once in a lifetime and a forest full of giant insects,” is the way the band describe the song and its inspiration. We’ll just say it’s punching towards magnificence.
Curxes are currently working on an animation for Haunted Gold which should see the light of day very soon before the single's official release, first digitally followed by an exotic vinyl release in time for record store day in April.
