|Brisbane’s UNI/VS hit the ground running in 2017 and have wasted no time between solidifying themselves as ones to watch not only in Brisbane, but the Australian heavy scene. With the release of “Hellhound” they push the bar even further.|
Hellhound was produced, mixed & mastered by Gareth Hargraves (Young Lions, The Comfort, The Brave) and features the thundering heavies and soaring melodic intervals that UNI/VS master. The single was inspired by the adverse effects technology and the digital age is having on the human race. On one hand being more connected then ever but on the other, that same power is being used to divide and outrage. Vocalist Scott Willis explains that “We are constantly being fed information that may have no real truth or a warped perspective being derived from algorithms that keep us coming back for more.“
The music clip was filmed, directed and edited by Dan Ramsay Visuals and depicts a dystopian-style setting in which the protagonist flits between a digital world and the real world, showing the separation between the two. A lonely and cold reality exists up against the action-packed, sensory overloaded virtual scenes of the digital age.
Since the release of UNI/VS sophomore EP “Smile”, the band’s fan base has grown rapidly after touring the EP across Australia early 2019. Last year began to snowball as they proceeded to play sold-out shows around the country supporting acts such as Dealer, Confession, Windwaker and Mirrors.
