Danish indie rock band Kúlu released their latest single Seeking last month, proving again their able to blend in echoey, shoegaze guitars and dark, melancholic melodies together in the way that the likes of Editors do. Only, somehow Kúlu seem to be able to leave you feeling uplifted as well, and we can’t work out if it’s that chorus, those driving drums or that popping bassline.
Taking advantage of an abandoned swimming pool in guitarist Søren’s Copenhagen residential block, the band dived in (you see what I did there, right) and used it to make a live video for the single, which we’re delighted to premiere right here on Backseat Mafia today. It marks the first time all five members of the band have been together on film, and the performance brings out the dramatic, emotive quality of the song
