“Zombie” by the French band UTO is a captivating blend of electronic rock in 2023, drawing inspiration from Sonic Youth, Stereolab, and The Chemical Brothers. It’s a haunting journey into love, desire, and the supernatural.
The lyrics tell a cursed love story between a human and a monster, offering a seductive yet ominous allure. UTO masterfully combines electronic elements, synthesizers, and computer-generated sounds to create a contemporary yet ‘90s-reminiscent sonic landscape.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions and the road of life is potholed with delectable poisons. “Zombie” tells the cursed love story between a human being and a monster. The monster returns from hell with its puny arms full of unearthly gifts for their loved one. But what happens when these offerings are as desirable as they are dangerous..? Brace yourself for a mesmerizing odyssey that’s both desirable and dangerous.
Matching the otherworldly sounds of the song, UTO deliver an equally bizarre, yet mesmerizing visual to accompany “Zombie” on its wild trip. Distorting the real into something grotesquely beautiful. A one-of-a-kind experience for sure.
