"Seed" by Just Mustard is Northern Transmissions Song of the Day

Just Mustard have shared “Seed,” the latest track off their new album Heart Under, now available via Partisan Records. Just Mustard just wrapped up a worldwide tour with Fontaines D.C. The band, will hit the road again, starting May 30, in Brighton, England.

Guitarist Mete Kalyoncuoglu shares more on the song’s inspiration: “Along with a lot of electronics and noise, I was listening to a lot of music which featured bowed string instruments. I had finished reading ‘The Rest Is Noise’ by Alex Ross around the time we started writing and I was revisiting a lot of the 20th century composers that I first discovered watching Kubrick’s films, like Krzysztof Penderecki. The rising tempo strikes at the beginning of ‘Seed’ were inspired from the rising and falling xylophone in Béla Bartók’s ‘Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta’.”

The cover artwork for ‘Heart Under’ is an original work by internationally renowned English artist Graham Dean, who has previously collaborated with Peter Gabriel.

Heart Under was primarily recorded at Attica Studios in rural Donegal (Ireland), was produced by the band and mixed by David Wrench (Frank Ocean, Let’s Eat Grandma, Jamie xx, FKA twigs and beyond). The title, Heart Under, comes from the lyric “the heart under its foot” from album track ‘Sore’, and throughout recording the band discussed the idea of wanting the listener to feel like they’re on a train going through a tunnel or being pulled by an anchor to the bottom of the sea.
