This is well worth a listen, but be warned, it will get in your head.
You may recognise Andy Norton from the John Peel-championed Crimea, 2014 sees him front retro-wave rousing pop group Cursor Major. Written and recorded in Bristol with additional production from Kieron Pepper (Dead Kids / Prodigy) and final mixes from Tim Allen (Bat for Lashes), the forthcoming debut ‘Interloper’ is a circus of casio keyboards, twisted pop guitar lines and dark humour.
Drawing on the studio eccentricity of XTC and early Brian Eno, Cursor Major ultimately invoke the spirit of a jilted T-Rex – adding their own arty new wave touches to create something anthemic yet vehemently experimental.
With ‘Interloper’ announced for release on March 24th, pre-orders are available via Bellicose Records or Bandcamp.
Cursor Major are: Andy Norton, Benjamin Johnson, Charlie Inshaw and Scott Neilson.
