THE GURU GURU has been happily dealing in deep express art rock since 2012, combining feverishly angular guitars with off-kilter, poly-rhythms all complimented by erratic and unhinged vocals.
While influences are drawn from the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, The Mars Volta, SOULWAX, The Jesus Lizard & Andy Kaufman, the indie-math- psycho-noise rulebook is torn apart, resulting in erratic songs that somehow seem to develop into wriggling earworms. The band cannot be placed into one genre.
With their 3rd full album ‘Make (Less) Babies’ – out on the 27th of October 2023 on Suisse label Hummus Records in collaboration with the French label A Tant Rêver Du Roi Records – The Guru Guru took matters into their own hands and they did the full production of the album themselves, from recording to mixing. No compromises. They wrote, composed, rehearsed, recorded, produced and mixed everything in Farrm studio, Hasselt (Belgium). The purpose of doing everything themselves was to make the most honest album since the band started playing music. Straight from the heart. They recorded everything live in the studio, there were no instrument overdubs recorded. They took their energy and sound they have live on stage onto this album to make it more natural and organically sounding. Tight energetic drums, deep bass lines, virtuoso screaming guitars and with a very expressive frontman. This is what THE GURU GURU sounds like in 2023.
