Jens Kuross

"What Kuross presents is a slow-burning, analogue and entirely captivating debut born out of whirring, atmospheric synths and a heart-beating, walking kick-drum. “Steadier” swells and grows organically led by his intriguing, increasingly emotional tones." - THE LINE OF BEST FIT

If ever there was a line that could be drawn between the haunting, ethereal melancholy of Thom Yorke, and the poetic lyricism and inviting nostalgia of Tom Waits, then Jens Kuross could be the artist who walks it. Defying the precariousness of that position, Jens’ music falls into neither the trap of self-indulgent mellow-drama, or into tired, Americana sentimentality, but rather, deftly balances evocative lyrics and affecting harmonies with a stirring sincerity and command of traditional songwriting that provide the perfect backdrop for his gentle and weighty croon.
