"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."
