It's definitely better on headphones than on phone or laptop speakers, but still, there's just not much there apart from the kick and the bass. It's a nice beat but the rest of the sounds just aren't very interesting. I'm growing kind of tired of all the noodling with dusty, distorted "the synth has broken down and fallen down the stairs" kind of sounds. I get they're really into that stuff right now though.

I mean, compare this to singles from any of the early era's and it's not very memorable is it?

Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
Yeah i get you, King of Snake, and your opinion is valid and appreciated.
Counterpoint: Are those 90's singles more memorable because you have almost 30 years of recollection and nostalgia?
I'm in agreement that this new track is not the most epic piece of music UW have ever released, but it's pretty great to hear from a band with such a history, and it's a logical progression of what they've been doing since Drift, which progressed from BBWFASF, out of Barking, etc., etc. If they kept releasing Dubno-style tracks, a certain fanbase would love it, but that'd be seen as playing it safe for many others.
Evolution, baby!

Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
one of the dirts I keep in touch with got a big nostalgia moment with this, saying it's "very dubno". I so naturally associated with with a drift continuance that it didn't even occur to me, but it's all there come to think of it, just with more sheen to it.
I still feel positive about the track and It's getting more and more lodged in the brain. I think the synth clicks and distortion are another iteration of the vocal snatches from the 90s. I'm into it. it just also feels silly to make such a hubbub about it. a whole drop? really? but you know what, why not. if it was left as a b-side it'd be a hidden gem instead.

Is this really going to just be a Soundcloud exclusive? Or will it be seeing a wider release later?

This is too good to leave to Soundcloud.

Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
it's fine, but I think I prefer the original as this one sounds a bit... trendy. Does some neat things in the back half though.

Up for purchase on iTunes and such now. I suppose a 24-bit version will appear on Qobuz shortly too. Also available on all streaming platforms.

Re: "and the colour red" - 3rd of April
I agree that it's a little more pop-ravy than the typical Underworld remix, but I really enjoy it. I like that it doesn't try to bury or minimize Karl at all, but puts him even more front of center in the mix.

If the 12" had included this track on the B-side I would have bought it in a heartbeeat.
