Linked by fate and brought together by laser focus on storytelling through music, UNA is a ménage àtrois of head, heart, and soul. With a barebones roster of Jennifer Cook on vocals, Richard Larsen on keys and production and Eddie Barajas on turntables, UNA imparts a larger-than-life sound on listeners, telling intricate tales in a direct, sensual and cinematic style.
Inspired by the present, the past and things as simple as a feeling, UNA is a spirited bossanova track inspired by a crime of passion, an opulent lullaby based on a grand Biblical tale, an anguished, orchestral trip-hop ballad about an unstable affair.
Can the magic of UNA be categorized into a genre? Maybe. Downtempo and electronica loom large in the trio’s repertoire, but so do blues, jazz, Latin influences, soul and funk; a retro-future sensibility with a sound firmly planted in the present.
Dedicated to borrowing from all genres to tell their stories, a throughline persists; earnestly sultry vocals, penchant keys, expansive basslines, blithesome instrumentation and cavernous effects form a pleasing marriage between light and dark that drips with charisma.
The trees swaying in the wind, the little girl crying in the closet, the existential conundrums of the modern world. The mystical experience of simply living. With a twist.
UNA's first LP, one, released in 2008, rose to number one in the US as MediaGuide’s Top Debut for an Unsigned Band.
While retaining their foundation of electronica and trip-hop, they, in the course of their musical journey, have discovered a new land of emotional peaks and mesmerizing landscapes. The Laughing Man EP features new instruments, vocal clusters, and bold breaking beats. One thing they have not lost, the love of melody and lyric, keeping stride with the intent of the song.
The Laughing Man EP will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp.
Stay tuned for a remix album of The Laughing Man EP May 21st, 2013 featuring mixes from DJ Cam, Nightmares on Wax, The Herbaliser and John Tejada to name a few!
