"the CONCERT Hurulas opening is as much a rock-solid concert as a chance to get feel less alone."
"++++ nHurulanPlats: Berns, Stockholm, sweden. Audience: 1 200 (sold out). Length: 1 hour and 20 minutes. Best: the ”New drug” and ”Evil like me.” Worst: the Chaos that occurs when Berns rush out to a thousand people to open the nightclub. "
"nwhen I think of Hurula, I think of my friend Hanna. She was introduced to the Hurulas the music of a guy she was dating and allowed the ”Evil as I” go on repeat when it came to an end. "
"”the Lyrics are so naked, simple and strong”, she wont say. "
"She's right. Hurula clean gitarrock without the frills, this is just a raw and straight feelings. "
"It sounds most evident on the latest album ”Class” where the singer gets even more personal. The cover is graced by an 18-year-old Robert Hurula at the police station after he was been caught for a burglary."
"It really says it all. "
"”the Railway bridge” – perhaps the album's strongest song is about loneliness and depression in his hometown of Luleå. Phones go up in the air and captures the powerful moment when he sings about ”självmordsbron”: ”With a avtrubbat namnu002FOch a jaded platsu002FSom not native seru002FFör the work elsewhere'."
"As dark and raw is the ”self-medication”. It does almost hurt to see how Hurula churning out the words in anger and despair."
"And the audience sings with in his every word. "
"It may be Hurulas fight, but in the evening we all unleash our sorrows. "
"In the ”22” parts artist and audience a relief to get leaving the hometown that never felt like home."
"And in the ”New drug” I think that Berne never got to see so much affinity that when the crowd embraces each other and at the same time clenching his fists in the air. "
"Hurula go with firm step to the front and back of the stage, he bends down over the guitar and looks like he is going to fall down on his knees. "
"It's the thing with Hurula. When he talks about his feelings he also provides the words to the our."
"nHurula play in Gothenburg and Lund, sweden on 4 and 5 april."
