Unzyme

Biomechanical pop

Unzyme’s biomechanical pop combines the energy and catchy melodies of rock songs with rough and beautiful electronic soundscapes. The Unzyme staff is driven by synthetic life forms, ambitious DIY mentality and multidimensional imagination. Musically we’re influenced by Coldplay, Imagine Dragons, Pet Shop Boys, Sia, Pendulum, Green Day and Bon Jovi, to name a few.
