about

"Chicago pop-rockers The Curls prove that sextets have more fun. Their 2017 album, Super Unit, deftly wove jazz, lounge, doo-wop, punk, rock, and more into one delirious spree. The Curls don’t stick to any one notion of what their music should sound like; in their world, everything is up for grabs." - Pitchfork

"The Curls are curating some of the wildest & most sporadic sounds that are set to decorate the exhibition halls of tomorrow’s modern art museums & centers for the arts."

"a post-post-modern world of musical dadaism worthy of universal attention" - impose magazine

"A QUIRKY AND SOPHISTICATED GEM THAT'S SURE TO GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS."
- pop matters

"sounds like an ambitiously scattered, psych pop-inspired Arcade Fire." - Atwood Magazine

"I LIKE IT!" - Adrian Belew

"Gotta check it out once the wifi's strong ❤️" - Roy Molloy via Facebook Messenger

Available on cassette tape from Dark Circles Records and on THE NET (Spotify, itoons, etc.)
