Curxes – Sceptre

July 29, 2012

Curxes are Roberta Fidora & Macaulay Hopwood from Brighton. They’re not the future of pop. I’ve made that mistake before, we’ve trumpeted someone as the ‘future sound of pop’ and somehow the label hasn’t stuck. Surely if team SGTMT hail someone with such an accolade than the rest of the music press should just fall in line right? I mean, where we go first the record buying public follow. That’s the truth right?

If the truth be told, this blog has as much influence on the record buying populus as a tin of mouldy sardines has on the political decisions of the Conservative party (though doubtless the sardines could do a better job, if given the chance. Btw I’ll be voting for the tinned sardines next time, who’s with me?).

I don’t know what I’m talking about, boy this blogpost blows. AH, yes… CURXES. As I was saying they’ve been on the scene for 18 months or so and have got all the hip type blogs all quivery with blogcitement. A brief tour of their small but impressive portfolio easily explains the hype. Frankly, Curxes are, like, well good.

We’ll be spinning Sceptre on the SGTMT jukebox for days to come:
