Universal Sex Arena's propulsive debut for the London-based Kowloon Records merges tropical percussion, odd time signatures, wiry angular guitars, and twisting off-kilter arrangements - hinting at an innovative vision for future directions in rock music. The Italian experimental rock outfit's new LP 'Abdita' centers around a journey to the south. A journey without any geographically precise destination; just to that archetypical idea of 'The South. Meeting new people, landscapes, and music along the way, the adventure is at times welcoming, sometimes dangerous, and always mysterious. 'Abdita''s twelve track opus unfurls down divergent paths touching upon a unique combination of sensuous rock and roll, no wave/punk thrust, and tactile polyrhythmic drive. Seamlessly shifting arrangements thread frenetic dual drummer attack with careening guitars and synths through Universal Sex Arena's intriguing polyglot lens. Experimental and playful in nature, there is something deliberately inviting and warm about 'Abdita's danceable pulse, exotic melodies, and frontman Voiture Tempo's sultry summoning. Directing you down the road to The South, the destination melts away the coldness of human relations. The South slows down time, work takes on a more humane pace, and asserts the simple contemplation of love, nature, time, and the rhythm of life. Recorded and produced by Maurizio Baggio (The Soft Moon, Merchandise, EMA), the album features contributions from from Luca Ferrari of Verdena and Elli De Mon. Universal Sex Arena's remarkable live performance is both physical and urgent, singer Voiture Tempo comments "during the concerts, we have to exchange our energy with other people present: at our disposal there are our music and our bodies. Every show of ours represents something that may not be repeated. The shows are muscular, positive, intense: often not predictable"
