Under release new video for “Malcontent”

Under are a trio from Stockport, Greater Manchester. Formed in 2016. Though rooted in the blueprints of sludge and doom metal, their sound is harder to pin down with elements of prog, Noise and avant garde creeping in. Under play with jagged, slow, off kilter riffs that tease the listener into a false sense of security with dark and abstract lyricism evoking a trippy and sinister unease. The trio cite the likes of Swans, Mr. Bungle, The Melvins and Radiohead as prime influences.

The band have unveiled their new video for latest single “Malcontent”, from their current album Stop Being Naïve. When asked on the theme behind the song, the band stated:

Andy (Preece – drums, vocals) came up with this suitably grinding, droning riff while bored out of his mind waiting outside a changing room. As we arranged the overall tine, adding Mayo’s signature noise and our usual uneasy rhythmic approach, we tried to accentuate that feeling of anxious horror and discomfort as much as we could. To reflect this feeling I wrote the lyrics to invoke that sickly desperation apparent in anybody hungry for power.
