Unearthed artists we like
Drawn together from a miscellaneous musicians ad, mates since school on guitars met cousins on rhythm. Three months later their first ep ‘on a quiet day you can hear it breathing’ was recorded in a single 8-hour session. All the same age, they grew up listening to a variety of independent music, obsessed with indie rock as it evolved from My Bloody Valentine to Sonic Youth, listening to anything from Ride, Dinosaur Jr, Swervedriver, Teenage Fanclub, Trans Am, Mogwai, and Underground Lovers through to Engine Kid, Kyuss, Poster Children, Melvins, and Dead Kennedys.

Starting out dark and bare the song gradually grows in pace and in density. A lot of ground is covered in this seven minute epic, there are elements reminisant of grunge, early 80s "alternative" and prog rock. But really the guys go a long way at developing their own style and sound. This is a great follow up from one of the more promising unearthed bands!

The sound here has elements of the early 80s punk sound and the early 90s shoegazing vibe. The track starts off with a dark vibe and a heavy bass line, at the half way mark it goes into a soft guitar solo that gradually builds up getting louder and faster before rocking out towards the end. This is a very impressive effort! The song has a lot of depth and atmosphere and the tunes twist, turn and evolve as the song progresses!
