Every month, the Forward Magazine brings you a selection of musical pearls hand-picked by friends, musicians, speakers of the Forward Festival and many more. The seventh edition is curated by the Viennese up-and-coming band Culk.


Check out Culk’s playlist, which starts with their first single “Begierde/Scham” and continues with songs that influence their own compositions. They are soothingly melodic as well as awakingly disruptive – from Gary Clark Jr. to Sonic Youth, this playlist drags you through your full range of emotions.



Culk is a young Viennese formation around lead singer and front-woman Sophie Löw. Their music is characterised through strong and unpredictable melodic outbursts – going back and forth between meditative trance, boisterous essence and pure ecstasy.


Their first album will be released in early 2019. Find more information and tour dates here and on their Facebook page.
