Teasing their upcoming record Disasterclass which will be out January 2nd, 2024, the Chicago-based rockers Koalra dropped their 3rd single Undertow on the 15th of December 2023. Laying some heavy, fuzzy guitars with diverse influences and their unique touch, Undertow is a tune for all sludgy, stoner fuzz-freaks like myself. Let me tell you more about it.

Koalra dived right into business on Undertow’s intro, opening with fluid expressive vocals and raw distorted guitars casting a mysterious atmospheric mood that instantly gets the listeners hooked. It has an organic, flowing dynamic structure that moves forward as a stream of melodies that smoothly carries the listeners throughout its subtle dynamic shifts, creating a powerful hypnotizing enjoyable flow with deep pounding bass and tight vocal harmonies that magnify their sound. Undertow has unique layering and arrangement, as each and every element plays a major role in its progression while being part of this massive wall of sound that makes you put it on repeat.

Undertow is a solid, captivating tune by Koalra that shows their well-knowledge of their direction, as they perfectly steered their massive flow towards their desired sound without losing focus or compromising their mood. Looking forward to more from Koalra, keep on rocking guys. Cheers!
