THE UNIVERSAL dressing Liverpool band The Universal are set to announce their exciting arrival on musical radars up and down the UK with the imminent release of their self-titled debut album on May 17th through Diffusion Music.
Based around the talents of singer, guitarist and songwriter Terry Shaughnessy (who brings a deep seated love for classic MOD culture to the plate), the quartet̢۪s timeless take on vintage British guitar rock has seen them draw comparisons to classic bands The Jam and The Kinks, resulting in support slots with the likes of Ocean Color Scene. The band̢۪s music burns brightly with an intelligent passion fuelled rhetoric that displays their working class roots proudly on their sleeves and serves as a musically defiant call to arms to the nations counter-culture.
With these influences in mind, The Universal tip their collective hat with wide-eyed appreciation toward a glorious musical past yet add a uniquely modern edge to a guitar style that will never go out of fashion. Displaying a natural and stylistic swagger that is aspired to by the many but achieved by the few, The Universal are a band for the people and 2010 is the year the revolution is set to begin!
