The Great Curve is the project of Nick Tompkins, songwriter for Brighton/London based alternative rock outfit Youth Sector who have enjoyed acclaim from national radio and international tastemakers in online and print press. Drawing from an ongoing career in live performance and songwriting, The Great Curve carry through the urgency and raw power of his ongoing career in guitar music whilst combining it with soaring cinematic soundscapes and exquisite melody.

The Great Curve revere the envelope-pushing songwriting prowess and analogue goodness of artists such as Elvis Costello, Talking Heads, Echo & The Bunnymen and DEVO and channel that into their work. Organic recording techniques take precedent with drums being tracked live in-studio where possible and experimentation is embraced with real guitars and analogue synthesizers; this does not limit innovation however with expertise in high-quality sound libraries, the sky is the limit when it comes to creating vibrant, urgent music.
