Reliably informed

There are few obstacles that can’t be beaten with a little bit of a can-do attitude – and a can-do attitude is just what Newcastle-based hard rock band The Unattested have. They’re not about to let a measly national lockdown get in the way of the release of their new EP, Versus.

It’s not immediately clear who they’re up against, but if their foe is unproductivity, it’s safe to say they’ve kicked its backside. Versus got a headstart in the studio: their new vocalist found her feet there alongside some drum tracks, but the rest had to be recorded and produced at home. The result is perhaps a bit more rough and ready than it otherwise would have been; operatic vocals lie over grimy guitar hooks and gritty bass in Zombie Boogie, while We Drew Blood gets spruced up for the EP release and it’s a glo-up not only in production (goodbye boxy echo-chamber, hello crystal clear tunes) but also in confidence. The Unattested look like they’re finding their feet, ready to jumpstart their music ASAS (As Soon As Safe.)

The Unattested release Versus EP on 14th August
