Under The Tongue are a Berlin based alternative tribal rock duo that are Mark Eden (vox/guitar/programming) from Melbourne and Julia Eden (vox/bass/piano) from Berlin.
Their music consists of a beautiful collage of styles composed of simple powerful guitar lines and singalong choruses set against a back drop of groove driven, lavish drumscapes and some lush piano by Julia which adds an eerie soundtrack presence. Under The Tongue creates an atmosphere where the audience participation is as important as the music itself.
Live, the duo uses loopers, guitars, bass, piano and percussion. Using the loopers enables the band to utilise the many layered vocals, guitars and drums that are so prevelent in their recordings and gives a spontaneity to the performance.
The band also plays as a three piec (...) Mehr anzeigene, which includes a live drummer who adds another dimension to the live performances.
Mark is an Australian International award winning artist/singer/songwriter who has written over 700 songs and has released several successful solo albums before forming Under The Tongue with Julia in 2008.
‘Potions’ is the latest album by the duo which won the
International Electronic/Alternative Rock Academia Awards album of July 2015. Potions was mastered by Bob Ludwig (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, Puscifer…etc).
Influences are The Beatles, Puscifer, Oasis, Depeche Mode, Ben Harper and film scores…
UTT are currently working on their 3rd album which will be released in 2020.
"Their new video for the single "Troubled Mind" ...a bizzare and otherworldly first installment and testament of what was to follow, ultimately being this epic new album "Potions"...the album is a dark and mysterious ride but an essential one that delves into the psyche of both protagonists and essentially brings out the character and charm of this multifaceted album. It feels like a very personnel account and from the very beginning you are drawn into their world, a mix of Pan's Labyrinth meets Tom Waits in wonderland. Clanging, clanking drums and percussion layered with beautiful guitar and piano arrangements bind the productions together. Complete with the beckoning voices of both Mark and Julia throughout this full length make for an intriguing Journey from start to end."

His debut album ‘MELT’is without a doubt one of my favourite albums by an unsigned artist – and i ve heard plenty. Now Eden has released the long awaited( for me anyway)follow up, ‘NO MIND’.
A sadder , more subdued affair than ‘Melt’ , ‘No Mind’ showcases Edens humanity, delving deep inside his soul in search of the universe within him.This is the theme throughout No Mind giving the album much more focus than his debut…
No Mind isn’t so much a collection of songs as it is a mosaic of feelings and vulnerability. As a result, it represents an important new dimension to this highly talented artist, already impressive capabilities.
This music needs to be heard.

” The initial response to hearing Mark Edens 2nd album No Mind, is more than likely to be “How has a singer / Songwriter possessing such talent remained unsigned? ”
This is certainly a valid question. Dare I say” He is one of the most popular and most successful unsigned artist’s I know of. Boasting a loyal live performance following and being voted for best unsigned artist in 2001, surely justifies my claim…
The melodies born from this musician, are nothing short of harmonious and aurally pleasing. No Mind is however one of those albums that needs to be listened to a few times before you can reach that distinct appreciation. The exceptional beauty of No Mind is definitely worth the wait though. If Edens music were personified his vocals and instruments would be holding hands together…….Providing a sense of purity as he captures an emotion and then allows ‘the music to write itself.
Adding to the sense of integrity is the tribal element existing in most of his music. Their is a sheer honesty in this music that cannot be ignored….A magnificent awareness of music is evident and the unpretentious nature of Edens composition is truly inspiring . He is taking music back to its original element-propelling sincerity ,charm and most importantly ,integrity.”
