German duo Gurr unveil ‘Hot Summer’


IMPALA European Album of the Year Award winners – German duo (Andreya + Laura Lee) Gurr – release their track ‘Hot Summer’ – and you can listen to it now on the Fantasy Premier League playlist.

Aside from beating off The XX, Laura Marling & King Krule to win the IMPALA, they been on a sold-out headline tour and support tours with Shame and The Go Team – as well as finding time to pen ‘In My Head’s‘ highly anticipated follow-up.

‘Hot Summer’ was actually conceived on a very grey day in London. The pair tried to capture “that feeling of despair when everyone around you is happy, but somehow you just don’t feel it.”

Produced by Richard X (Roisin Murphy, Goldfrapp, Kelis) the result is a no-nonsense anti-summer anthem – the opposite to those generic auto-tuned pop songs about dancing and drinking in the sun.

As well as returning with new material, Gurr will also be playing a bumper section of over 20 European festivals this year. The ‘Hot Summer Festival Tour’ will include performances at Rock Am Ring, Melt and Lollapalooza Berlin. They can also exclusively announce a headline show at The Garage on November 29, their biggest show in London to date.
