Harry Harrison Sand Whale is an EP of punk/stoner fusion that’s guaranteed to get your foot tapping. There’s a roughness that makes this EP all that much better to immerse yourself in. I'm just loving the stuff that’s coming out of Russia at the moment. Awesome tunes, thanks Underthals. And thanks to C.D. for the feed. Favorite track: The Blind.

about

Mammals ancestors, bloody bumblebee, elevator of doom, bubbles made of ivory, and the longest compounded rhyme in English on Russian rock scene - those are only few figures of the hard/heavy/stoner/grunge band Underthals’ first EP. It’s charged with very diverse moods, from bitterness and repulsion to tasty joke, from doubt and qualm to emotional overload and then burst. It’s the four-part composition of hard and heavy melodies, swinging, seducing here, and epic, invocatory there. It’s the young sand whale either hanging in boundless depths or rapidly cutting through them.

about

Underthals Moscow, Russia

As Sand Whale EP shows, a peculiar kind of hard/heavy/stoner/grunge blend is primary for Underthals’ music today. This mixture is thick but not greasy, tough but ethereal where needed, speedy but made with careful attention to the details. Team feature are two vocalists with different points: frontman for clean voice and growling, MC for growling too but along with nu-like flow. ... more

Track Name: Qualm
Drowned are not allowed
To step into the same water twice
Splitted are not permitted
To go to scattered bodies and look through eyes
He who’s picked up quickly
Doesn’t count fallen at all
But you who litter thickly — to save the ass —
Better watch your head and cut off the qualm
That lives there

Elevator up
I’ve changed my mind
Pledge my word it’s ultimately this time
Elevator up
I’ve changed my mind
Oh wait could I make the final try
Elevator up
I trust myself
Move it move it move it and the doom is mine
Elevator up
I comprehend
No wait do I have just one more try

Tell me
Do I have just one more try
Tell me
Who are they passing me by
Who are
They dissolving in mountain’s womb
Are they
Our descendants for whom

Elevator up
I’ve changed my mind
Pledge my word it’s ultimately this time
Elevator up
I’ve changed my mind
Oh wait could I make the final try
Elevator up
I trust myself
Move it move it move it and the doom is mine
Elevator up
I comprehend
No wait do I have just one more try

Music you know inducing
Face it with carefully washed
Face
None will be confusing
If you’re waiting me to end up with «disgrace»
He who’s picked up quickly
Doesn’t count in any sense
And you who are so sickly — as winter sun —
Better watch your guts and protuberance

One way
No way
I’m the mediator
Give me
Take me
And crush the elevator
Track Name: The Blind
Their hearts are like throats in blood
That hardly furrow
Hot crystal hollow
It’s your eyes
I’m talking about

The pearl in the sand
The gleam in the well
The slug waiting to fall down
But it freezes at the fall
Another brick in the wall
The wall of the temple now

While your teeth
Are mashing breath
Enter bumblebee
Washes gut
In your blood
Just before it flees

Needles that stale
Horses that pale
That dream about ragged wounds
Reality has bitten
In itself but they’ knitting
And always surely would

While your teeth
Are mashing breath
Enter bumblebee
Washes gut
In your blood
Just before it flees

I’ll never look into your face again
I don’t want to regret
I’ll never look into your face again
That I’m the one who sees

Oh this vermillion
This vermillion veil
Oh this milky bud of the wall-eye
Track Name: Bubbles
You do right and the rest is not your charge.
Working, buying, giving birth… "What more can I do?"
You sink in the tub full of complacency.
Maybe all the mess of the world starts here?

Burst your dear bubble
Of tranquility.
Burst your dear bubble.
Do it, break the cherished
Dear bubble made of ivory.
Burst your dear bubble,
Do it, even though you…

The earth has bubbles, as the water has,
And these are of them – it once was written.
You are only bubble filler for now –
Beware of turning into bubble yourself.

Burst your dear bubble
Of tranquility.
Burst your dear bubble.
Do it, break the cherished
Dear bubble made of ivory.
Burst your dear bubble,
Do it, even though you
Could start a chain reaction
But the very sense is just in it.
Let's start the chain reaction
'Cause the very sense is just in it.
Track Name: Ecological Waltz
Permian-Triassic
Extinction event
Was far more deadly
Than K-T one

It was the greatest
Dying of species
On Earth
But you've survived for...
What?

Oh therapsida
What have your seed done
X2

We hope that Gojira
Will think and forgive us
For this innocent joke
About ecology

Oh therapsida
What have your seed done
X2
