Underwing is the intense interaction between groovy rhythms, melancholic moods, hard-hitting hooks and the commanding vocals of Enyeto Kotori.
By taking inspiration from genres such as prog, stoner and grunge, the band has made a unique musical expression. In short: If Black Sabbath and Alice In Chains had a lovechild that was adopted by TOOL, who coincidentally lived next door to Soundgarden and Motorpsycho, the result would be Underwing.
The band’s debut EP, “Kaela Upsweep”, was released on 20.05.2017 and received critical acclaim from both national and international music press, such as Moshville Times, NRK Sørlandet, Heavymetal.no, Scream Magazine, Norway Rock Magazine and The Wilhelmsens. The main single from the EP, "Sunless Seed", has been streamed over 200 000 times on Spotify.
In November 2018, the band released their next single, “Where Gods Conspire”, which quickly garnered critical acclaim and over 40 000 streams on Spotify over the course of two months.
Underwing started 2019 on a high note with the release of “The Hoof”, a boisterous barnbuster of a single that combines the groove of bands like Audioslave with the progressive, viceral flair of Gojira.
Achieving great results from dropping two singles in the winter months, Underwing could call themselves the most streamed progressive grunge band in Norway. Most of early 2019 consisted of playing shows while preparing the release of the band's next EP "Spirals" on the 1st of June.
