VIDEO REVIEW: Uncomely – ‘Intro (Follow Me)’

'It's like a Disney soundtrack gone wrong. I love stuff like this, I like warped music'


Uncomely’s new video was shot as part of the 2Weeks2Make It 2017 Competition which puts filmmaker and musician teams together and asks them to make a music video in two weeks. The video was created by NFX FILMS the band’s first track in their upcoming mixtape.

Visually it’s a disturbing story – Strewn clothes, an empty bassinet, a distressed man by a lakeside. Musically it’s all warped sweetness. Vocals on the ragged side of ragged, peaking in desperation. It’s like a Disney soundtrack gone wrong. I love stuff like this, I like warped music.

Whether this ‘style’ marks out the style of the upcoming material I just don’t know, Uncomely go very much their own way musically. But this reminded me, in a very good way of Band of Holy Joy (a band I loved back in the 80s) – musically a little, but in the vibe, the feeling, a lot. Lovely stuff.

What I love about Uncomely is that they are not afraid to experiment with their sound – this sounds nothing like the tracks on their ‘TIME?/ВРЕМЯ?’ EP (read my review here) or their track ‘Speakless’ (review here) BUT it does have the certain something that Uncomely’s music has.
