about

Following an indie West Coast/Southwest US Tour ending in their hometown of Los Angeles, UByK (originally Samantha Tobey & Roman Roze) wrote new material and eventually went into the studio w/ producer Alex Newport to record their debut EP Matryoshka, officially released in April 2008. The band also released a stop motion video for the title track "Matryoshka" and an experimental art film for the song "Work." More about the recording of the Matryoshka EP can be read in this interview with UByK published around the time of the release:

UByK has since evolved and expanded both their touring and album lineup to include Swedish lead guitarist Pelle Hillstrom, LA veteran drummer Rich Sherwood, and Australian import Fox on Bass, all of whom can be heard on UByK's next release entitled "Odds" set to be released in early 2012.

Track Name: Matryoshka
Promises Broken And Splitting In Half
All that I want is something I had
Fell to the bottom
When u cry
Its Alright It’s Alright

Reach Out For Nothing but Nothing Is There
Slips through your fingers and into thin air
Time At The Bottom
When your down
It’s Alright It’s Alright

And For A While, I Soar Above All The Clouds,
I’m Going Up, Ill See You On - The Way Down.
Don’t Be Too Long, I’m - Floating Up, Folding Time
Trying To Keep Up With The Sun.
Don’t Wake Me

Tiny Red Petals
And big gaping eyes
Trying to hold on but there’s too many sides
Solid inside her.
When you lie, it’s alright
It’s alright

And For A While, I Soar Above All The Clouds,
I’m Going Up, Ill See You On - The Way Down.
Don’t Be Too Long, I’m - Floating Up, Folding Time
Trying To Keep Up With The Sun.
Don’t Wake Me
Floating Up, Folding Time
Higher And Higher And….
Floating Up, Higher And Higher And Higher…..
Floating Up, Higher And Higher And Higher…..
Track Name: Work
Wake up there is much to do
Dishwasher is getting full
Feed the kitty and the pooch
And Run, Run, Run

Shine your hair and shine your shoes
Happy face, don’t get the blues
It will all be over soon
Don’t Run, Run, Run

Working, Working, Work All Day
Working, Work, No Time to Play
Working All My Days Away
Working Is The Only Way

Days go quick but never end
I liked it more as just pretend
Will I ever see my friends?
Their Gone, Gone, Gone
Pennies pinched but nothing’s saved
Will I ever make the grade?
Eight more days till I get paid
Why Run, Run, Run?

Working, Working, Work All Day
Working, Work, No Time to Play
Working All My Days Away
Working Is The Only Way

Trinkets, cogs, and faces change
Shops are closed, Replacements made
Some things still remain the same
We Run, Run, Run, Run

Wake one day, not much to do
Children grown, no one but you
No one cares how much you’ve earned
You’re Done, Done, Done

Working, Working, Work All Day
Working, Work, No Time to Play
Working All My Days Away
Working Is The Only Way
Track Name: Just Fine
Nobody dies in my world
Need not you be sad
Nobody cries in my world
No one left uncared
No one in a hurry
Everyone can make time
No one needs to worry
Everything is fine
Just Fine

Everyone is healthy
No one left uncured
Everyone in love here
All intentions pure
Everything is safe,
There’s never any crime
Everyone is perfect
Everything is fine
Just Fine
Just Fine
Just Fine

Everyone dies in this world
Everyone is scared
Everyone cries in this world
No one really cares
Everything is hurried
No one can make time
Everyone is worried
No one’s really fine
Just Fine
Just Fine
Just Fine
Track Name: Merry Go Round
Head in the clouds
Beautiful sounds
Up and then Down

Merry Go Round
Merry Go Round

Been here before
Be there once more
Spinning around round round
Merry go round

Holding my breath, till we get to the top and then
Fall, fall, fall
Just the same ride but there’s no more surprise anymore
Everyone seems so small when your on top
Round and round and up and down, they fall

A steady pace
That same old taste
You’ve come to expect
Know what you’ll get

Merry Go Round
Merry Go Round
Track Name: Delicate Swarm
Salesmen
Mimic my movements
Pacing my breath
Watching my fingers tap
On the hard-wooden desk
He’s closing in fast.

Warm
Are the delicate awarm
At the top of the hill
Long winding stairs
Beverages chilled
Feeling fulfilled

Hold tight with all your might. It’s a long way down.
Hold on. Don’t look down won’t let you hit the ground.

Ailments
Making my body ache
Making me sweat
Can’t feel my fingertips
Can’t catch my breath
Fading fast.

Your not alone, No
Your not alone, No

Hold tight with all your might. It’s a long way down.
Hold on. Don’t look down won’t let you hit the ground

Together forever and ever, and after.
Together forever and after.
