UPCDOWNC have released a new music video!
Titled Adrift (Parts 1 & 2), the track is taken from the bands upcoming album I, Awake which is set for release this September. Speaking about the upcoming album, guitarist Chris Garth says, “the writing was heavily influenced by the later SWANS albums like The Glowing Man and To Be Kind where dynamics and repetition are used to great effect. We were listening to a lot of early BLACK SABBATH at the time which accounts for the heavy riffs, as well as quite a few different horror sound tracks. We liked the idea of lots of small sections put together in bigger passages so that they form one whole entire piece which doesn’t necessarily have to be played in the same order when playing live. We had also started to use loops but wanted to keep things simple so used them more for textures rather than melodies, as we always like to record live with minimal overdubs.”
