On its new album The Narrows, United Waters removes the aural fog covering its earlier releases with a luminescent view of its song craft. This new transparency has an airy clarity that highlights the outfits woozy guitars in microscopic detail. Rock is present, but the albums rhythm section lingers behind in a deep distance creating the groups most stark and intimate release to date. With proof from bare-bones ballads like Least Turn and Move the Distance, categorizing United Waters with other demented pop margin walkers such as 90s Siltbreeze Records, Hall of Fame, and The Tall Dwarfs is all too easy. However, United Waters resemble anything but a pop sensibility as their raw materials are too willfully damaged, busted up and taped together to transmit such a style. Still, reasonable facsimiles of said influence do exist. The track Even the Moon is reminiscent of nothing less than a Nikki Sudden demo cassette grinding through a cheap tape deck while Mile Wide recasts chorus-pedal proto-goth as a 4AD 12 with the grooves pressed off-center. The albums title track ultimately has the last word with its swirling, off-key leads uncoiling in a shambling crescendo that re-conjures Sullivans earlier demolition works. Though never quite attaining a full-on climax, the songs exquisite restraint caps the album with a locked-down coda that lingers far longer than its noise-rock antecedents, opting instead to offer its heavy hurricane winds in slow motion.
