Uncomely deploy their signature grunge-funk-punk sound once again on this hard-hitting track, recorded at Greenmount Studios (Cribs/Pulled Apart By Horses).
The new single, Black Flowers, is a fuzzy sonic rollercoaster. Cranking up slowly with the band’s trademark eerie guitars and ethereal vocals, the track plummets with foot-stomping riffs and two hands in the air catchy hooks. In some ways more akin to a symphony than a rock track, the band ebb and flow through distinct sections, climaxing with a grungey crescendo accelerando.
The band hooked up with videographers and actors from Germany, France and the UK for the short-film music video. Featuring cameos by frontman Tom and bassist Arthur, the short-film follows sightseeing backpacker Celine around Paris. Unfulfilled by the traditional tourist hotspots she stumbles into an unexpected adventure while doing a good deed.
The single will be released with a walloping four to the floor remix and is now available in all platforms. A very limited run of handmade grafitti CDs will be available to buy from Crash Records and Jumbo Records. The CD includes download codes and an exclusive live version recorded at Lending Room that isnt available anywhere else.
Consisting of two Latvians, an Italian and an Englishman, Uncomely are primarily inspired by the wave of grunge and punk rock bands that revolutionised music in the 1990s. Having found a base in Yorkshire, the band are keen collaborators and have worked with producers, artists, directors and photographers all over Europe in their quest to create challenging and authentic work, which is making them one of the most exciting bands to emerge from the scene.
Uncomely‘s debut release – a self-produced and self-released mixtape in 2017 – was a thrilling collision of fuzz guitars and manic vocals portraying themes of addiction and mental health. 2018 saw a continuation of this through their Games People Play EP which featured the abrasive, grunge-funk-punk “Fun Times”.
