Uni, the NYC-based psych band that includes David Strange and Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger’s Charlotte Kemp Muhl and new singer Jack James, have a new single: the heavy, big-riffed “Destroyer,” which comes with a phantasmagoric video full of freaky claymation and apocalyptic visions. The Band describes it like this:

“I write this letter from a fallout shelter below the wreckage of the earth in the year 2042. Some said it was the exploitation of the poor. The rich blamed the marxist revolt. Some say the feminists had turned their backs on the men, while others blamed toxic masculinity. Helter Skelter played its part. There were clashes of political ideology, religion, race and gender as well as environmental catastrophes. Hurricanes, draughts, earthquakes and wildfires ravaged the earth. Needless to say, the firmament didn’t hold and the nuclear war left nothing but ash. Now that humanity has been razed and only the mutants are left to wander, I reflect on what could have been different from within the walls of my concrete fortress, waiting for the rations to run out.

It was neither one of these factors nor all of them responsible for what happened. It was something older than the universe itself, embedded in every molecule exploded from the Big Bang and crawling as a single cell from the primordial sludge to the White House lawn. It lives inside all of us like reptilian DNA. It is dormant when ignored but spreads like fire when fed. It is a glutton and we willingly shoveled the fuel intoit’s filthy gullet, like a cordycep fungus controlling the brains of ants. It takes many forms but each are a manifestation of the single deadly entity. It is Destroyer.

“Destroyer” premiers here, you can watch it below.

You can catch Uni this spring on the road this spring with The Claypool Lennon Delirium the band which features her GOASTT bandmate, Sean Lennon, as well as Primus’ Les Claypool.
