Tour Diary: Gurr

The Berlin-based Garage-rockers share photos from their recent European tour

Garage-rockers Gurr have been charming Berlin’s audiences since 2012, and received skyrocketing attention following the release of their full-length debut, In My Head, last year. 

Weller-esque polo shirts meet big old Epiphone guitars in style and sound, and their second single ‘Walnuts’ delivers strong hooks and catchy singalongs in spades. Here, Gurr take us along for the ride on the tour that would lead up to a sold-out show at Lido.

Ludwigshafen

First show of the tour – we didn’t expect much, we played at around 8pm and were the only band, but a lot of people showed up and gave us invitations to Russia. We ate pasta with seafood before the show.

Zürich

Stuttgart

Berlin

After our record release show in Kantine am Berghain we got into the car, kissed our baes goodbye and drove to Paris. Here we woke up after a three-hour nap between 6 and 9am to have ‘breakfast’ at the hip vegan café, McDonalds.

Brighton

London

Lille

In Lille we binge shopped Maman products (biscuits, cookies, brownies and yoghurts/mousse au chocolat) that we devoured before the show. The very nice promoters gave us boxed wine but we could hardly look at alcohol that day.

In My Head is out now on Duchess Box Records.
