'The Language of Curiosity' is a collection of stories about different facets of post-modern real-life experiences from working for the man, attitudes towards lust, passion and casual sex, space travel, social systems and abuse by power and money, war and the global refugee crisis, gatekeepers in the music industry, people giving up and growing old before their time and feel good ‘70s inspired British rock and British blues; it's like looking at different sides of a Rubik's cube.
From full-on rock ’n’ roll tribal drums, thunderous bass, badass dirty guitar riffs, drunken echoes of slide and lap steel, melting melodies and vocal harmonies combined with old school valve guitar amps and analog tape machines - Starlite & Campbell have a very British sound!
