UTO - "Zombie"

When a band is compared to both Sonic Youth and The Chemical Brothers in their press release, I'm going to be intrigued. It sounds impossible to pull off, but France's UTO somehow do it. Their latest single, "Zombie," has that giant 90's electronica heyday sound to it, but in a smaller, DIY package. There's also a sense of foreboding, as well as a darkness, that The Chemical Brothers just didn't have. It might not have the all out noise and aggression of Sonic Youth, but that is where they get the darkness from. It's an interesting and unique sound that is sure to make you want to groove once you get past the initial confusion.

You can watch the video for "Zombie" below. The single is out now via InFine. For more on UTO, check out the artist on Instagram.
