KUU! “Artificial Sheep” out now



“KUU! take no prisoners. Serbia-born singer Jelena Kuljić, two blistering electric guitarists, and brilliant free-jazz/avant-rock drummer Christian Lillinger grippingly churn through fast improv, snarlingly punky vocals, Arcade Fire and Beastie Boys covers, and intimately ghostly ballads.”

  • The Guardian, John Fordham (GB)
