Last night at the intimate setting at Spike Hill, Unicycle Loves You took the stage with a careful microphone check, then powered right into their set—the room immediately subsumed by their energy. With a perfect sense of tempo and catchy crescendos, the band has the catchiness of Architecture In Helsinki, and, if you know just one song by the New Pornographers like me, then you might still venture the comparison of Unicycle Loves You to the New Pornographers, like I just did. Although the second to last song in the set was a bit muddy due to improper sound distribution, the set was otherwise flawless. Smooth, mountainous drums, sonic tinges on the Alesis synth, glossy vocal hums, gripes and lighthearted trills, flavorful acoustic meshing. Don’t miss these three.
