Peter Novak(Rasping Boy) I saw a live video ... just the lot of electronic equipments and other stuff as a forgotten cities and lands used by 4 or 5 musicians.... touch there and then there, this knobs this keys, this pedal and I saw it like a work with all the civilization stuff .... that was amazing like a work with kind of autonomous existence Favorite track: Tsuki ni te (ft. Cokiyu).

David Only once in a blue moon, can art be so dark and haunting, yet so beautiful and enchanting. A perfect brew of avant-garde and folk practices. Favorite track: Tsuki ni te (ft. Cokiyu).

"Gurun Gurun’s tracks strike a nice balance between natural sounds and computer deconstruction." (Foxy Digitalis)

"Gurun Gurun have crafted an album of mysterious electro-acoustic expedition." (Foreign Accents)

“Very very special in so many ways!” (Daniel Crossley, Fluid Radio)

"All I really can say is ‘wow.’ You just have to hear it…" (Cyclic Defrost)

"Gurun Gurun return with their beautiful and bewildering sophomore LP, 'Kon B', creating not just an album, but an experience." (Anthem Review)

"Honestly, i haven’t heard something that ephemeric from Europe for a long, long time (since múm in 2004, perhaps?), which for me makes this music even more valuable and worth checking." (Refreaked)

“Lots of nice textures and unusual sounds are filling the air all wrapped up in a real sense of melody. The sound palette is very varied with a whole array of different sounds and noises going on. Loads going on in fact! You could listen to this album a good few times and hear new things in each listen. A Norman Records recommendation.” (Norman Records)

“Gurun Gurun despite their distinctly Japanese sound are actually from the Czech Republic. I suppose this is why they manage to avoid the cloying sweetness of many of their contemporaries; the sound of Gurun Gurun is still delicate, electronic pop, but tempered slightly by noise and grit. Recommended release.” (Boomkat)

about

Gurun Gurun Prague, Czechia

"GG are a Czech quartet made up of Jára Tarnovski, Ondřej Ježek, Tomáš Knoflíček and Federsel. They are the inventors of an original declension of alternative pop, which melds deconstructions of typical pop songs, glitch electronica and bizarre sonorities."
(Chain D.L.K.)

"GG’s tracks strike a nice balance between natural sounds and computer deconstruction." (Foxy Digitalis)
