If you like your indie rock dark, heavy and bordering on the psych-punk, then Brighton’s GURU should be the band for you. Guru blend psychedelia with fuzz and punk to bring one of the most promising and unique new sounds. It’s harsh and in your face, with outstanding vocals, tasty riffs and heavy bass. With ‘Medicine Man’ and the blistering ‘Consumer Helpline’ putting them on the radar strongly enough to propel this four-piece hollering loudly for attention into 2019.

Debut single – proper – ‘Consumer Helpline’ is a stark, electrifying piece of Brutalist indie rock, worth comparing to those initial Shame cuts or even elements of the Fat Whites. Picking apart modern relationships in an era of hyper-capitalism, it reminds us of everyone from Wire to Sports Team, that kind of barbed, deeply British take on art-punk.

The single ‘Medicine Man’ is the band’s most visceral yet, opening with eerie feedback and a menacing bass line, the song kicks into a track that oozes with the attitude and commotion that defines them as a band.
