Yamantaka // Sonic Titan is a Canadian experimental collective that incorporates noise, pop, metal, industrial, rock, among others into their music. Their excellent debut album, YT//ST, received wide acclaim and was even shortlisted for the 2012 Polaris Music Prize. Now, the group’s prepped to release their sophomore effort, UZU, on October 29th via new U.S. label home Suicide Squeeze and Paper Bag in Canada.
The 10-track album is previewed with a cut called “One”. Edgy and animalistic one second, melodic and sweet the next, it’s a song that somehow expertly blends many of the aforementioned musical genres, but in a completely unconventional, yet exhilarating way.
