Jerkcurb: feature in NME Radar
Hiding somewhere on a street corner in deepest South London is Jerkcurb – the lo-fi bedroom project of 20-year-old art student, and buddy of King Krule, Jacob Read. Taking inspiration from the twisted verses of Moondog and Arthur Russell, he’s becoming something of a master when it comes to making melodramatic four-minute wonders from the comfort of his own home. In ‘Midnight Snack’ – the key track on Jerkcurb’s SoundCloud – he melds soft-textured guitars and hushed voices to thrilling effect. All subtle drones and waves of 3am vocals, think of it as midnight music for a midnight city.
