Let’s get to know Uni, a buzzworthy band from New York City, in anticipation of their free show at Bill’s Bar on Friday, August 24 at 6 p.m.

THE BAND: Uni was founded in 2017 by American model, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Kemp Muhl. The three piece–who perform as a six piece live–combines looks that bring to mind glam-era Bowie with hooks that echo the distortion of what’s going on in the world today.

HOME BASE: New York City

GENRE: Psych-rock? Glam-pop? Uni are a genre unto themselves.

SONG TO KNOW: “Mushroom Cloud,” which the band performed in session in L.A. earlier this year. If this is what Uni is all about live, then we’re all about seeing them live.

SHOW TO HIT UP: The indie617 Free Show with Uni at Bill’s Bar on Friday, August 24. Click here to RSVP.

SOCIAL: For an act that puts so much thought, effort, and art into their look, Uni is a must-follow on Instagram.
