“2012 has been a wide range of things for Unicycle Loves You, but a failure isn’t one of them. With two albums in their rear view mirror, the Chicago trio released Failure in February. Taking complete control of the recording process, Jim Carroll created the record he had always wanted to make. Once regarded as a quirky indie pop band, the delicious proportions of reverb and noise combined with Carroll’s cynical lyrics, on Failure, have given Unicycle Loves You a reboot as a noisy garage rock band armed with melodic hooks. Following the release of Failure, Unicycle Loves You hit the road hard, touring the U.S. and making pit stops at SXSW and Middle of the Map Fest. Along the way they earned a reputation for unhinged performances, playing harder and louder as the tour progressed”.
I`ve decided to play the quirky Noise-Pop card, almost impossible to beat and ultimately fiendish to contest. `Unicycle Loves You` have a chaotic sound, one minute slightly dreamy, another it`s pots and pans all over the place – It`s clever Alt-Pop making no excuses for being musically unrepentant and romantically honest. This years release `Failure`(third album) shares a cool melodic Post-Punk outlook with charisma that crackles like fresh popcorn. There are more free tracks available from the band`s Soundcloud.
“On Friday September 7th, the band will enter another chapter in the metamorphosis, playing their final Chicago show before Jim Carroll and Nicole Vitale move to Brooklyn, bringing with them the Unicycle name”.
Friday September 7th at The Beat Kitchen, Chicago, IL
