Birmingham became something of a hotbed of exciting new musical talent in 2013, with the likes of Jaws and Dumb following PEACE and Swim Deep into the hearts of many. Curb were another to make an impression, debut demo 'How Are You Now?' getting decent coverage on the blogosphere. They've been quietly going about their business since but they've started the 2014 strongly, with new track 'So High' proving an impressive statement of intent.
'How Are You Now?' didn't quite win my heart (I was okay with it, thanks) but 'So High' has given me greater enthusiasm for the Brum quartet. With a sound that straddles stadium rock and Madchester vibes, 'So High' suggests Curb are aiming suitably high. Listen to the track below, and check out their Soundcloud to listen to 'How Are You Now?' for a limited time.
