In today's music scene, originality doesn't always seem to be the leading force. In fact, some might argue that many of the most successful current bands are simply breathing new life into the aesthetics of decades past. So when a band surfaces defying easy classification, their existence becomes a noteworthy matter.
Brooklyn, NY's UnWed are just such a band. Although their members have made names for themselves for nearly 20 years in other musical endeavors (Hot Water Music, Small Brown Bike, Primitive Weapons, Gay For Johnny Depp, Errortype:11), UnWed reaches far beyond anything in their combined history. Instead, the band bring their punk and indie roots to the table, amalgamating these influences with more traditionally heavy rock elements to create their unique sound. Add to the mix vocals provided by their powerful female singer and the overall result is undeniably interesting.
Following the release of their debut EP via No Idea Records, UnWed set out to write and record their first proper full length. The quintet teamed with an accomplished group of engineers, including Paul Leavitt, Ryan Jones, Brian McTernan, Will Beasley, and Travis Bacon, each with considerable resumes of their own. The end result, entitled Raise The Kids, captures a band bridging the gaps between hard rock, anthemic punk, and alternative with splendid precision.
