New genres pop up like rashes, yet it would seem they're rarely more than a misguided attempt for boring bands to seem original. However 'Blitz-Pop', the self-professed genre of Brighton duo Curxes might just be the antidote of this. While Curxes may be the only Blitz-Pop band to exist, their infectious, mellow industrial-pop sound might just be the catalyst to a whole new genre.

The band's latest single 'Further Still' is the perfect example of original, intelligent pop music. Driven by Roberta Fidora's compelling vocals and synthetic, 80s-inspired instrumentation, the song represents a softer and more intimate sound for the band. The song is available for a free download and will be accompanied by remixes from the likes of Avec Sans.
