Unohu – Babel – EP Review

The Indian rock trio Unohu released the EP Babel a few hours ago.

Unohu - Babel


Opening the four track EP is Call My Name, which discovers Unohu in dirty leather jackets as the guitar slingshots around the room in a tad just over three and and a third minutes of growling rock’n’roll. The value added track on Babel.

Next comes Waiting For Caesar a number that replaces the leather jackets with recently pressed shirts as Unohu combine heavy-metal with indie, resulting in a track, which far from threading confusion resonates of a trio have far more to offer than straightforward constructs.

The third track – Incognito reaches one again for the anchor as the scuzzy guitar weighs down the composition that gives bass and drum-kit foreground in a drizzling blues driven thread of ideas.

The conclusion of Babel rests with Time, which is also the longest track – running at one second under four minutes in which Unohu disport both their reference points of ’90s britpop and ’70s heavy-metal to deliver a song in which each element of the band is given moment to shine. My pick of the release.

Plans are afoot to release their début EP next month and I look forward to being able to hear more.

Although the material I have been able to listen to resonates of mournful lyric and sadness this is not music to be taken with a bottle of pills, rather whilst watching the sun setting, to quietly contemplate the vastness of the universe.

As an introduction one of the two tracks currently around – Time.
