You know that cute faux-pouting vocal that artists like Maroon 5, John Mayer and Train will bring? It’s a little laid-back, a little uptempo, possibly calculated, but infectious melodically like a hard piece of caramel candy. Pop enough to move the bodies of 40-something soccer moms, but organic sonically enough to get those beatnik indie rockers to close their eyes and sway a bit, too. ABR, AILD, TDWP and most acronym’d metal band fans will hate the sweetness of Unspoken (and more power to ‘em), but it’s hard to knock this radio-friendly rock when it’s done this well.
Frenzied. Chaotic. Punk. The Undertaking!, San Diego's newest wild bunch, is about to release their debut album, and, if their live show is a premonition of any kind, the world will be opening up to one heck of a party with them. Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.Full Feature More from The Undertaking
