Krrum’s off-kilter yet catchy pop calls to mind the work of artists as diverse as Gorillaz, Jai Paul, and SOPHIE. He headlined our festival in 2017.
He began dabbling in music while growing up in England’s Peak District, but took it more seriously once he moved to Leeds for his studies.
While working on his songs and collaborating with other musicians, Krrum worked at a butcher shop, where he picked up his moniker. His debut single, “Morphine,” appeared in 2015 and was soon followed by the Evil Twin EP, which 37 Adventures released early the following year.
Three more tracks — the tender ballad “Hard on You,” a cover of Flume’s “Never Be Like You,” and “Still Love” — arrived a few months later.
In 2017, Krrum issued the more upbeat “Moon” and collaborated with Daktyl on the title track of the producer’s The Act of Hesitation EP. Honeymoon, Krrum’s debut full-length, appeared in June 2018. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
