Krrum – Morphine


Krrum hails from England’s Dark Peak regino, which is a fitting place of origin for the broody, mysterious singer-producer. The 20-year-old musician cites Justin Vernon and Jai Paul as influences, and there’s definitely a murky indie R&B quality to “Morphine,” his intoxicating debut single.

Over a backbone of warm synths and clean guitar, Krrum shines both technically behind the booth and inside of it. His soulful, raspy voice is a fantastic tool, as he pitch bends and distorts it to give “Morphine” even more drama and darkness.

The song and Krrum’s overall style are reminiscent of fellow U.K. boundary pushers like Royce Wood Junior or Jamie Woon, and there’s a pleasing confidence to the newcomer’s soulful sound.

With a debut EP dropping in 2016, expect Krrum to be among the next crop of English artists overtaking the blog world.
