EMBRACING THE UNKNOWN
Using dense layers of electronics, Unknower creates dark, atmospheric songs that take influence from an array of genres, from hard rock and heavy metal to electronica, dirty south hip hop, and trap music. Ingredients are taken from each genre and blended into an all-electronic assault of gritty synthesizers and driving beats. The result is a unique sound that doesn’t quite fit into any one genre or category.
The name Unknower is inspired by Socretes, who once said “I know that I know nothing,” implying that along the path to find truth, we often come across things we once thought we knew that we must re-learn or un-learn. An Unknower is someone on the search for truth who isn’t afraid of questioning everything they know in the process.
“From Denver Colorado, Unknower makes a sound that would appeal to fans of Mr.Kitty and Crystal Castles. On Vampires, you can hear everything from rock to electronica breaking through, all mixed up with a sense of the dramatic but oddly it all contrives to give the track an oddly downtempo feel. This is one of those genre-defying songs that people might find difficult to get into, but I can imagine rock and electro fans liking it for very different reasons!” – Electronic North
“UNKNOWER takes influences from a wide range of genres, from hard rock, industrial, and heavy metal, to dirty south hip hop and trap music, and combines it all into an all-electronic assault of gritty synthesizers. UNKNOWER’s self-titled debut is available soon with a super limited run of 250 ‘Ultra Clear’ with ‘Black’ smoke colored vinyl.” – Pirates Press “Record Of The Week” Blog
