Follow a string of European festival appearances, Nepal heavy hitters Underside have now released a video for their song, ‘Wild’, set in their hometown of Kathmandu.
This is what the band had to say about the song and its video.
“‘Wild’ is about the reality of our society we live in where people in position and place are corrupt to their bones – like vultures feasting on their prey.
Wildest things happens in this place and no one is accountable for their actions. Our beautiful city has been degraded to one of the most polluted and an unmanaged city in the world and it is still okay. No one cares, no one bothers that’s how fucking WILD this place has become.
As much as we chose to portray the dark side of it, we felt the balanced approach would be to shine on the bright side of it as well. In this case, the monk. So you could say it’s the amalgam of chaos and beauty and our interpretation of our society while showing the aesthetic of Kathmandu and our wild metal scene.”
You can stream and watch the video for ‘Wild’ below.
At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not the track will remain as a stand alone single, or feature on a forthcoming album/EP.
