JUST MUSTARD unveil their new album ‘Heart Under’ this week. Following a string of single releases, ‘Seed’ is our final preview of the new record.
Their powerful fusion of light and dark once again works wonders, with their huge, industrial soundscapes sounding bigger than ever. A bracing listen, the track adds yet more elements to their transfixing sound – techno-inspired rhythms feed into searing guitars with everyone careening off into white noise.
Guitarist Mete Kalyoncuoglu said “Along with a lot of electronics and noise, I was listening to a lot of music which featured bowed string instruments. I had finished reading ‘The Rest Is Noise’ by Alex Ross around the time we started writing and I was revisiting a lot of the 20th century composers that I first discovered watching Kubrick’s films, like Krzysztof Penderecki. The rising tempo strikes at the beginning of ‘Seed’ were inspired from the rising and falling xylophone in Béla Bartók’s ‘Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta’.
