Curlys Jewels are a rock band from Wellington NZ. Their sound has been described as grungy yet powerfully emotive, pinned together with soaring vocals, dark guitar undertones and a punching rhythm section. The charismatic, colourful and instantly likeable front person, Jel Pollock, draws listeners in with her delightfully unique stage presence and sensational vocal range. Aaron Ludlow (guitar), Andy van der Heyden (bass) and Corey Bell (drums), provide the energetic foundations complimenting Jel, with all members lighting up the stage.
The band has released a number or records including their latest single Absentee released in 2019. This track peaked at #16 on the Official NZ Top 40 Hot Singles Chart, debuted on The Rock radio station’s Rock 1500 Countdown, and hit playlists across NZ’s major independent rock stations. The last two Curlys Jewels singles were recorded at Roundhead Studios with the legendary producer Greg Haver (Manic Street Preachers) and mixed by Clint Murphy (Devilskin). The band is in the process of recording its third single with Greg and are targeting a 2020 release.
