UKLD are featuring this week on James McGauran's outstanding blog series of Q&As. It's a really in depth interview that covers a lot of ground and includes links to our music and videos along with plenty of information about how we work together. Really excited to be part of it!
This is what music curators are already saying about this work:
"A beautifully constructed blend of electro Creep-Rock with a hefty helping of some extremely beautiful vocals. This EP is full of originality, a skill that's becoming increasingly difficult in the saturated market - UKLD are instantly recognisable in a very large ocean of acts.
The influences are too numerous to mention, from mid- career Depeche, through Nine Inch Nails and on to modern EBM - all infused with uneasy minor chord arrangements and breath-taking production.
UKLD's songcraft is second to none. The final track leaves you spinning in a maze of beauty and closes a truly brilliant release. The only issue here, is that it doesn't go on for another hour - certainly among the best stuff I've heard this year"
"Discovery of the inner self through music, a journey along our internal Nazca lines. Unknown, ancient, calling out to us to far beyond what we know and where we are"
"Unknown Land are a duo that I'm absolutely sure will leave you breathless with their wonderful and atmospheric depth of music. I can guarantee that you will be moved by their incredibly rich and pure electronic tunes and equally the amazingly haunting and magical vocals"
You can already see our second single and video of our new Ep "Redline"
This video graphically shows the idea behind the concept of QUALIA, addressed in this song, to demonstrate what would be the only arguable difference between sentient beings and artificial intelligence, perhaps in a dystopian future, perhaps right now.
Our first single and video of our new Ep "Redline" featuring the art from Julius Horsthuis.
This song uses the fractal landscapes as an aesthetic concept to represent the main idea behind the lyrics of this song.
Which is why we contacted the artist Julius Horsthuis, who provided us with videos specially to accompany "Fractal" with his amazing imagery.
