Kurtis Wells

Kurtis Wells’ music occupies a brightly lit world, where the colours are turned up so high that objects begin to bleed into one another. His appropriately-titled debut single, ‘A Song About The Sun‘, was released earlier this year. Pinned down by a hefty bassline, his vocals on the track float happily above his impressive self-production.

Now he’s back with new track ‘Abyss’ which, if anything, is sunnier in sound than its predecessor, but exposes more of the darkness hidden in his lyrics – although this still gives way to lightness in the end.

“In my darkest moments, while drowning in an abyss of emotional bankruptcy, reflecting on the universal truth reminded me that the difference between success and failure is one more time”, he says of the track, speaking to The Fader.
