“Innervision” is an interior explosion from Austin’s UVH, a band that splits the difference between punk and shoegaze. There are gauzy layers galore; half the time, you can’t understand singer Larry Llodra’s impassioned pleas, but you can certainly hear that fire as it bursts from the group’s kinetic playing. The song is anxious and melodic, like an inner monologue going round and round in your head, looking for a way out. After working up all this steam, “Innervision” melts away under a cloud of distortion, with Llodra’s hazy words pointing the way back into the maze: “I enter the doorway that enters.”
“Innervision” appears on Last Fruit EP, out Sunday, October 30 via GTZ. UVH plays a release show on October 30 at the Barracuda with Ringo Deathstarr, Crooked Bangs, and Xetas.
