Last month, Laurie Erskine, aka CLUB KURU announced that he was "no longer a lonely man" with the project now existing as a quintet. To celebrate the news, the London-based group showcased a new direction to their sound by unveiling their new single Not For Me, as premiered by Huw Stephens on his BBC Radio 1 show.
Underlined by Erskine's whimsical falsetto, Not For Me finds the group nestled in a territory indebted to slow moving psychedelia and pop. It's a warm melody that colours Not For Me, as drums and keyboards stay at the forefront as Erskine relays a tale of returning home only to find himself displaced by his isolation and concludes with him rejecting yesterday for what today and tomorrow holds.
Listen to Not For Me above.
