Kurtis Wells finds hope at the end of tunnel on “Abyss”

The Trinidad-born, Germany-based artist’s new song is an emotional rollercoaster.

September 17, 2021

Berlin-based artist Kurtis Wells is looking to switch things up in life on "Abyss," his playful and pained new singe. "I think I need a change. Too much of the same things," he sings over spacey synths. "I'm going insane." It's a dark song wrapped in a bright wrapper, a catchy melody and slick electric guitars masking the exposed emotions in the middle.

Born in Trinidad, and having spent time pursuing music in Atlanta, New York and LA, Wells has spent his time recently in Berlin, isolated and focused on his solo career. "Abyss" follows his debut single "A Song About The Sun," released earlier this year.

Speaking to The FADER about Abyss, Wells said: "In my darkest moments, while drowning in an abyss of emotional bankruptcy, reflecting on the universal truth reminded me that the difference between success and failure is one more time."
