Curxes – The Birdx

Things have been a bit quiet in the Curxes camp since they put out Further Still and appeared on the cover of The Source earlier this year. Over the past couple of weeks though, a few mysterious teasers have appeared on YouTube. All five videos start off with the sound of a cheap Bontempi keyboard, but by the time you get to the fifth, it quickly morphs into something closer to Curxes trademark blitz-pop sound, albeit with slowed down vocals. Some of the lyrics that can make out “Sound and Vision is a privilege” were alluded to in a blog post about tour dates by the band back in September, and the text “Avant Guarded” flashes up. What could it all mean? Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
