Brighton four-piece GURU stopped by the Boogaloo Radio studio to chat all things new music with Karl on the Hard of Hearing show.
Known for their intense live sets, GURU have been hitting the London and Brighton circuit with force over the last couple of years, with their raucous reputation helping them pack out headline gigs and secure support slots for the likes of Lady Bird and Slaves.
The quartet – made up of vocalist Tommy, guitarist Kieran, bassist Ferg and drummer Olly – released their debut single Consumer Helpline in 2018; an electrifying and brutalist track which cemented their place as a band to watch last year. Since then, they’ve added a couple of more songs to the hit list. There’s Suntrap and Fixation and, more recently, their new double A-side Don’t Talk / LTD. It’s a charged set of tracks with hard-hitting lyrics and blistering punk vibes.
Having kicked off the year with a banger of a show at Blondies in London with support from Bristol-based bands Football FC and Sapphire Blues, and a sold out February headline gig in Brighton with Mice Ön Mars and Scowl, GURU are already making their mark on 2020.
The guys caught up with Karl from Hard of Hearing on Boogaloo Radio to talk about new music, why they’re doing things on their terms and what Macaulay Culkin has got to do with it all…
