Remote Control Universe are a fantastic new Alternative Rock band from Bury, Manchester.
directory of local bands
They consist of three amazingly talented young people; Caitlin on Guitar and Lead Vocals, Maddy on Bass and Backing Vocals and James on Drums. They are influenced by a number of different artists and Genres from Muse and Foo Fighters to musicals, jazz and classical, and they therefore have their own brilliantly unique sound. Frank Floyd said It was a shock to hear the female vocals of Caitlin Laing over the dirty lead guitar riff and this threw me into a confusing spiral at first, it made it hard to think of anyone to compare Remote Control Universe to.
The band formed in 2008 originally as a five piece, but achieved the RCU sound shortly after two members left in 2009. They started to write their own songs almost immediately and made their 1st professional recording in 2011. They are currently in their last year at school and looking forward to college and more freedom to write, record and perform live.
2012 brought their brilliant debut album Spanish Alien with excellent reviews from several quarters. It has drawn attention from all over the UK and places further afield, and have a rapidly increasing fan base, currently across 4 continents.

Nick Matthews said For three people in a band at that age it s impressive just to be writing your own music, but doing so with such style is amazing. These really are a band to keep an eye on.
BBC Manchester Introducing's Michelle Hussey says about their song Elephant Absolutely loving this song, it really really does me, you just can't stop singing along!
Frank Floyd also said Remote Control Universe will no doubt go from strength to strength throughout their career.
