Univox is rooted in the '70s in the best possible way, displaying a love for catchy harmonies, jagged punk and post-punk guitar textures, power pop energy, and rousing choruses.

Back in May, we called Univox’s self-titled debut “well-executed enough to be treasured by those who find it… in other words, a fine debut.” This is a band rooted in the ‘70s in the best possible way, displaying a love for catchy harmonies, jagged punk and post-punk guitar textures, power pop energy, and rousing choruses. The Philly group loves a strong riff and the primal spirit of rock and roll. It’s there on album opener “Pi” (stream after the jump) and also on the video we premiere today for “Conan”. Meanwhile the guys can turn all jangly on a dime too; witness the delicious acoustic strumming and harmonies on “Everybody Knows” and “Lever Master City”. This is a confident and self-assured entrance onto the rock and roll stage and we look forward to the next step from these young fellows.
