Loud like early '90s touchstones Swervedriver and Dinosaur Jr. Or perhaps The Jesus & Mary Chain. Cascading guitar squall, pounding rhythms, and basslines capable of moving the hairs on the back of your neck. Indeed, with their second album, bassist Derek Tokar has added his songwriting and vocal input along side Worang and Goldberg.
Through all of this hard work, the foursome found their live legs, playing off each other and creating an intense, connected stage presence. This shines through the bass-induced crevices of their new album Modern Currencies, lending it a more live, dynamic feel than anything you've heard from the band so far. Tight, but not over-produced; polished, but full of soul -- their experience as musicians is evident.
Over the last four years, Uncut have made the difficult move from a two-person studio project to a tour-ready four-piece. In doing so, they have outlived their early dance-rock pedigree, and are on to something new. Something better, and much, much louder.
