UIU is the solo incarnation of Greg Weir (ex DTHWBBA, White Fawn) operating out of Halls Head WA., Australia.
Detonic Recordings commissioned the mesmerizing “Wild And Innocent” and “Like A Doll” as the 4th single (and first Australian Artist) in their “Minimal Viable Product” series.
“The Wild And Innocent” is a story of murder , loss and hopelessness from a feminine perspective through a blade runner lens . While comprised of the trademark UIU looping synth drones it features hooks a plenty in the almost psychedelic vocal treatment.
Buried underground in the cool comfort of the shadows, UIU is a new force channeling inspiration from Dark Wave / New Wave/ Cold Wave / Goth / Synthpunk / Synthpop. Influenced by 1980’s acts such as Futurisk, Suicide, Gary Numan and The Human League, the UIU universe encompasses a wide palette of dark, yet melodic sounds- all warped into a retro soundtrack for an unknown future…
The Single will be available digitally on Wed 13th June from Spotify, Deezer, iTunes etc. and for free download from the Detonic Bandcamp.
