Uneven Structure drop new song 11 replies

French djentband Uneven Structure has dropped a new song called 'Funambule'. It's fro their upcoming album called 'La Partition', which will be released via Basick Records later this year.

Guitarist Igor Omodei commented on the new album:

"We started working on La Partition around mid 2012. Back then we had no clear idea about the sound we were aiming for, we only knew we’d like something organic sounding and managing to keep its momentum through the whole album more than in Februus.

“There are very slow noisy and heavy tracks — almost sludge-like — and much faster, hectic ones. Some are very intimate. It’s all a matter of having dynamics and keeping things unexpected. You get these moments where something happens, and then the track just takes your hand and pulls you in another direction."
