Uni embraces the grotesque in new video for "DDT"

Sultry and confident, in their latest video for single DDT, New York's alt-rock trio Uni makes good use of a mix of vaguely S&M imagery, glam-rock sartorial choices and the fetishization of all the iconography it portrays. The song itself is lumbering and heavy, with swelling organs, crunchy guitar riffs and powerful lead vocals by Nico Fuzz. Glam Rock had roots in NYC with the New York Dolls and David Bowie's formative years; times seems ripe for a revival in the city. - Ethan Ames

 





Uni delivers provocative music video for "What's the Problem", play at Baby's All Right 08.07

New York City Uni's debut video, “What’s The Problem,” is a playful, provocative and extremely entertaining take on '70s revival, but before you hit that play button you need to be aware that it's NSFW! As the song kicks in, the shots get more outlandish, yet more absorbing, with the stylish photography and retro backdrop neutralizing - to a certain extent - the images' sexual content. The new project, comprising Charlotte Kemp Muhl, David Strange, and Nico Fuzz, is truly as absurd as the band members' own description of it (which you need to read), and takes in the theatrical inclinations of glam-rock while pushing it towards diverging pop and porn extremes - with some existentialism thrown in for good measure. “What’s the problem with the girls that come from good homes?” the vocals insist, catalyzing the visual absurdities, as drums get more aggressive, and the melody get stretched out towards triumphant “Ooos”. Strange’s guitar riffs are infectious, the hooks are catchy, and the drums drive the build up without overpowering those psych-pop undertones. Check out the video below, and be sure to catch the band’s performance at Baby’s All Right on August 7th. – Pearse Devlin
