CUT_ – Undertow
Dutch future-pop duo CUT_ shared the follow-up to their PIAS debut single Tune In Tune Out ahead of their upcoming appearence at Eurosonic. The latest offering from the Amsterdam-based act is called Undertow and it’s a compelling tune marked by a heavily electronic influenced production, which lightly hints to trap and abounds in the use of icy synth lines and pulsating beats.
Speaking on the track, they said: “The relationship between the somewhat darker lyrics and the more spacious sound of the Undertow creates a certain tension, and that’s something we like to bring into our music. On the surface, the sound of the song shapes a pretty clear image, but when you listen carefully the grim side of the track emerges. Undertow has various layers that make it more interesting for us. We need music that doesn’t just unravel itself in the first listen but brings a complexity that you can discover slowly as you hear it more often.”
