Makeunder is quite an ironic name, considering the Bay Area 7-piece is anything but under made. Beginning as a home recording project for lead guitar and vocalist Hamilton Ulmer, the Oakland collective has since grown and is now comprised of particularly talented musicians composing tunes consisting of layered vocals, brilliant syncopation, and haunting pop melodies. Their latest EP, Great Headless Blank follows Ulmer's personal trials and tribulations following his father's passing, lyrically paralleling the cheerful and bright instrumental qualities of each song.

Representing an amalgamation of the vocal harmonies of Dirty Projectors, the live prowess of Moon Hooch, and the instrumental experimentality of tUnE-yArDs, Makeunder embrace a vast spectrum of influences. Today, were premiering their new track, "Inevitable Conclusion," which represents Makeunder's sonic nature as the track blends their influences together, producing a genre-harmonizing tune drawing from R&B, baroque pop, art rock, and more. The song tells the story of the mistimed long-distance relationship between Ulmer and British woman, only to be severed after his grieving period following his father's passing had ended too late, and his former lover had moved on. Their latest release, Great Headless Blank, will be available to stream on NPR on July 9th and is out later this summer. Check out our premiere below:
