The Unit Ama take their time. They act on their own terms.

This applies to their music and their work-rate. Two albums and a handful of singles in twenty years. Sporadic gigs. No endless Bandcamp messages or weekly mailing list updates. Rare missions outside their native north-east.

And then…

Toward is their second studio album and their second Gringo release. It’s not their ‘pandemic’ album but does see the band considering the important things: post-traumatic growth, insight through experience. Utilising the past to navigate towards a meaningful future.

Toward was self-produced and will probably get tagged as post-hardcore which is fair enough. But it’s also informed by post-punk, jazz and folk, and by working closely together for two decades. The Unit Ama play in other incarnations that inform their music and the way they dismantle expectations of the rock trio. There’s as much Richard Thompson as Minutemen.

Support comes from London’s own small town escapees These Towns. Expect joy and misery in equal measures; serene glacial calm rupturing into smashed and torn crescendos of blistering speed and violence. Sudden moments of sweet folk-inflected vocal harmony emerge like rays of sun breaking through the clouds onto ancient moorland.
