Uniform, “Perfect World”

JP Basileo

Uniform’s sound captures the absence of light. The Brooklyn duo, comprised of members of The Men and York Factory Complaint (among other projects), put out their beyond brutal Our Blood/Of Sound Mind and Body 12” last year, and their forthcoming follow-up Perfect World LP delves even further into the dark limits of noise. The title track, and first single, is a grotesque and righteous diatribe of discomfort. Incessant fortified bass kicks dwell beneath Ben Greenberg’s synth mechanics—a terror-instilling alarm clock with a broken snooze button—and the increasingly growling rumble of his distorted guitar; meanwhile Michael Berdan’s disdainful snarls grow to hateful shouts, the recurrence of “I curse the ground you walk on,” acting as track’s closest resemblance of a chorus. Almost like a heinous rain dance, the track goes almost three minutes without varying from its robotic drumbeat, and almost five minutes before a snare hit occurs, slowly including lighter tom and cymbal ticks, to subtly intensify the aura of doom, until its sudden end.

Perfect World is out June 9 on 12XU.
