UR’s first EP “City of UR” is about to be released.

The title “City of UR”,  alluding metaphorically to the city and Mesopotamian civilizations disappeared, want to invite to a reflection on the terminal state of contemporary civilization.

5 tracks that speak of the individual’s sense of impatience with the institutions and impotence towards the elites maneuvering behind the scenes of entire peoples fate, the man-machine relationship and the indiscriminate exploitation of resources, the war, the concept of “other” in a historical moment in which political and religious ideologies, continue to divide men fomenting hatred and inciting to point the finger at “the other”, a refugee, infidel, or the minority of cases.

We are located in Berlin for many years and both (Jacopo and Nico) cooperate internationally with several artists and projects in different areas of music.

This new band UR, currently embodied in a sprawling duo formed by baritone guitar/ synth / vocals and drums, was born a couple of years ago from the need to communicate with the public through harsh sounds, experimental and psychedelic, still putting trust in the power of rock as means to shake the conscience.

UR is a sound forge constantly working. A full length album is already ready as a second release.
