Check Out Manc Experimenters Dutch Uncles’ Storming New B-Side ‘Realm’ – Premiere

A taste of pop mania on the road with Paramore last year didn’t stop Dutch Uncles from grappling with alienation and anxiety on their fourth album, the impressive ‘O Shudder’, released last month via Memphis Industries. That same sense of unease is rife on ‘Realm’, the beautifully menacing B-side to new single ‘Upsilon’. “You’ve been scarred in the wastelands by bad life management,” trembles frontman Duncan Wallis above lightly mathy guitars and lush neoclassical strings before a dark jerking climax you’ll spend repeat listens trying to unpick. Check out the track below, along with upcoming tour dates.
