Unohu Return With Crushing Single ‘Upside Down’
The track is the Mumbai alt rock band’s first release since 2016’s EP ‘Babel’
Earlier today Mumbai alt rockers Unohu dropped a brand new single in the form of the crunchy and at times pulsating “Upside Down.” The song is the band’s first piece of fresh music since their 2016 four-track sophomore EP Babel.
With “Upside Down,” the band – comprising vocalist-guitarist Sarthak Karkare, drummer Shashwat Karkare and bassist Yohann Coutinho – showcase a developed sound and more mature songwriting compared to their earlier material.
The track opens with a booming bass intro and Sarthak’s vocals before Shashwat brings his melodic groove in with a snare hit. The verses stay light with embellished hooky “oohs.” Musically the track’s chorus has a climb effect while Sarthak sings “You cry foul/We’re lost and found” almost in a descending fashion which creates a contrasting effect. That section also features some gritty guitar parts. The song also goes into a psychedelic rock bridge breakdown before heading into one last line with just Sarthak singing, drums and the main vocal hook.
“Upside Down” was recorded, produced and mixed by Mumbai-based engineer Ayan De at his Midicore Studios. The track is currently only available exclusively on Apple Music.
