Just when you thought 2020 couldn’t get any stranger… Toronto’s alt-pop rockers Universal Honey Release New Music for first time in 15 years with UH EP 2020.
In making honey during this challenging musical period, Leslie Stanwyck and Johnny Sinclair are releasing their first new music in over a decade with UH EP 2020.
Re-energized by global activities in these last few months, Universal Honey principals Stanwyck (lead vocals, guitars, keyboards, production) and Sinclair (bass, vocals, production) co-wrote the six songs on UH EP 2020 in a creative burst. The couple’s trademark melodic power pop is in ample evidence across these fresh tracks. The first single, Rolling Back Time, lyrically is of the time – it’s all about looking forward and not getting caught in the trappings of past ideals.
Joined on these recording by two Canadian rock veterans, guitarist Kurt Schefter (Alannah Myles) and drummer Don Kerr (Ron Sexsmith, Rheostatics), the six tracks on UH EP 2020 extend the distinct “ear candy” sound Stanwyck and Sinclair created across seven earlier Universal Honey releases. Universal Honey’s distinct blend of melodic vocals, punchy guitars, and “can’t get it out of your head” hooks and choruses are in abundance here.
UH EP 2020 is being digitally released October 19th to all streaming sites, with compact disc format to follow.
Stay tuned, as Universal Honey continues to release the remainder of its largely unavailable catalog to streaming sites into 2021.
