After their recent SXSW performance Rolling Stone’s David Fricke praised the band saying, “For spectacle alone, Uni – a New York trio descended from the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, Charlotte Kemp Muhl’s psychedelic enterprise with Sean Lennon – scored points: Muhl’s silver-plated Hofner bass and matching lipstick; guitarist David Strange’s Mahavishnu-style double-necked Gibson; singer Nico Fuzz’s homemade-pyro effect during “Mushroom Cloud.” But there was invention as well as posture in the music, an earnest, retrospective immersion in Seventies prog-rock exaggeration served with glitter-rock bang. If Procol Harum and Spooky Tooth had chosen to make records like the Sweet, they might have sounded like Uni. But they wouldn’t have looked this good.”
Second 7″ Single, Mushroom Cloud b/w DDT, released March 23, 2018 on Chimera Music. Next release, The Girl Who Has It All b/w Electric Universe, is out on May 18, 2018. Order both: www.chimeramusic.com
