AUDIO: The Unitaskers – “The Last Pillar of Light”
Indie rockers The Unitaskers are out with their long-awaited debut EP. Each band member took individual lead on a track, theming them around existential dread. We got the first two tracks as singles before but we now have the full picture of absurdist, temperamental vision The Unitaskers built themselves around from the start. Ironic lyrics about pop culture, fuzzy bass lines, anxious refrains, and political disillusionment are the elements of the band’s friendly-but-moody artistry. They paint a picture here that feels timely for the confusing, chaotic era we’ve been trucking through. It’s elegant in an uncanny way; The Unitaskers are a band you need to know.
