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.
With a debut EP dropping in 2016, expect Krrum to be among the next crop of English artists overtaking the blog world.
There’s something special about a chill, effortless track and in this case that’s exactly what we get. “Nuff” is a fusion of calmness, coolness and just pure soul. Royce Wood Junior sure knows how to do it right and we are not mad about that one bit. This may be the only track on this UK producer’s soundcloud thus far, but if this is any indication of what’s to come… sign us up. Check out the addictive tune below featuring The Coattails.
