Wunami is a fairly young group from southern California. While I mostly associate this region with it’s volatile hardcore history, Wunami is about the furthest thing from it that a band could be.
Pointless is the band’s demo recording featuring three songs. The four-piece offers up melancholic post-rock over the course of a half-hour, beginning with “Pointless.” The song starts off slow and kind of wanders with no real direction for the first half, thankfully the second half finds its focus and delivers a bit more excitement. “I am Poured Out Like Water” is a twelve-minute opus of meandering post-rock complexities and the occasional heavier burst with hints of metal. Closer “Distance/Time” continues this mixture with a bit more dynamic expression in the drums, something that gives the music a lot more life.
For being just a demo, Pointless is quite spectacular. Wunami have great promise and if they continue to develop and grow I can see them becoming quite popular within this music style’s scene.
