PRE-ORDER FOR GURR‘S "FURRY DREAM" 12" VINYL EP STARTS NOW! THE EP IS LIMITED TO 500 COPIES - 100 INCL. PIGGY COMMANDER AS SILKSCREEN PRINT! RELEASE APRIL 8TH, 2016.
GURR take the spirit of American DIY subculture and enhance it with urban stories from Berlin: At a Thee Oh Sees concert in summer 2012 Andreya Casablanca, Laura Lee and Jil März decided to from a band and came together a few days later in a Neukölln rehearsal room.
The song Joseph Gordon-Levitt, a power-chord anthem about shallow pop culture, was the kick-off for a rush of songs and gigs, covering any topic from teenage angst to falling asleep on the underground. A few months later Andreya (guitar), Jil (bass) and Laura (drums) made for the USA, the mekka of garage rock, where they played in front of local dive bar residents. The three girls toured through Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Rochester and Buffalo until their visa could not be extended any longer and the three returned to Berlin.
After several cassette releases in the USA they put out their first EP in April 2015: During a weekend in Prenzlauer Berg they recorded together with friend and producer Timothy Lalonde what had bottled up over the years: Euphoric songs about nights spent in Berlin (Super Tired and Where Did You Go?) can be found on the EP Furry Dream just like more recent, melancholic songs about returning to the Berlin city life (No New Friends and Ode To Oatmeal). With fuzz guitars, a bit of Weird America and riot girl charm the three girls find their place somewhere among Thee Headcoatees, The Gories and Ty Segall.
Now for the first time „Furry Dream“ will be released on vinyl via Asset Discos / Concrete Jungle Records. The one-sided 12“ EP comes with colored vinyl, includes a poster booklet and MP3 download card and is limited to 500 copies.
