Uzumaki release Bandcamp-exclusive single ‘On and On’

London-based alt-grunge band Uzumaki have had to delay the release of their debut EP ‘Square One’ – it will now be out physically and digitally on 25th August via Everything Sucks Music. However, there’s a new track available exclusively via Bandcamp to tide you over. ‘On and On’ is the penultimate track of the EP and it’s a totally different side to Uzumaki which we haven’t seen before. Says vocalist and guitarist Alex Cheung: “The song and lyrics are themed around driving, and as the track trucks along, a journey is explored. Similarly to the other tracks on the EP, it tells a story of escapism and the idea of leaving.” The ultimate roadtrip anthem, ‘On and On’ features a supreme melodic backbone, huge drums and that relentless, driving, bass line.

The lead track from the EP – ‘Ugly Hunger’ – was released a few weeks back with its accompanying music video perfectly conveying the throwback influences the band proudly wear on their collective long-sleeve.

Uzumaki’s Brit pop, Seattle grunge, punk and alternative influences collide through the lens of 90’s wraparound sunglasses, yet the band are intent on refracting the past to create something new. These EP recordings were the first time the band entered a studio proper with all prior singles (most recently ‘Laughed’/’Loserella’) being self-recorded. The EP was, however, recorded live and away from microscopes. It’s a raw and honest representation of Uzumaki’s darker side and much of this is due to the nature and environment of the session. 

Uzumaki have most recently been seen ripping gigs across the UK with Decent Criminal and they’ve got several more live dates plotted for the rest of the year with more sure to be added.
