"Canadian Collective RADIO FREE UNIVERSE Enthralls With New Beatific Single ‘SHE’S HIGH AGAIN’…"

"an instant triumph. ‘SHE’S HIGH AGAIN‘ is a tower
of a song bringing the first-rate songwriting quality of legendary bands such as the Eagles and The Band to mind. Here’s a solid gold humdinger that combines Canadacana, rock, pop and soul in order to create a universal and appealing sound that you just can not like. This wonderful tune has an ongoing, irresistible groove with a magnetic impact while the poppy and beatific tone of the high-spirited chorus will touch your melancholic side. Top melody, top vocals, top orchestration, top achievement!" - Turn Up The Volume

"Hamilton Rockers RADIO FREE UNIVERSE Unveil Their Addictive New Single “She’s High Again” [Song Premiere]"

"Sometimes simply referred to as RFU, this quintet began their “indie rock rise from nothing” back in 2010 and have since established themselves as a premiere independent act in not only Ontario, but also Canada as a whole." - Pure Grain Audio

"Freshly Pressed – Radio Free Universe’s “She’s High Again”"

FTS: Tell us about your new single, “She’s High Again”.

RFU: This is a song that took years to make. It was never really a song until we finished the studio build. It’s the kind of song that needed a world-class facility where the equipment used in the recording would not impede the performances. Everything in that song had to have the word greatness attached to it. Mark McMaster even pinned it to the console as a reference. From the lyrics to the string arrangements it just had to have an electricity that made the listener see and feel the story.

Producing the song was reminiscent of the characters in the song. Like the girl who was chasing the high or the boyfriend who was chasing the high of her. We were chasing this sonic perfection and we weren’t sure we were going to find it. This is one of those rare cases where I’m sure we found it and for me it’s euphoric to listen to it. - From The Strait

Coming 2/14/2020



Radio Free Universe breaks through the divisions of genre to create a sound that unites us all.

After two albums of electric guitar-fueled rock – collections of songs that looked outward with penetrating insight and bravado – a tumultuous year of transition and self-discovery has lead us to look inward. We want to write songs of love, loss, and renewal that are shaped by personal experience and real emotion; songs that remind you what it means to be human, and why music matters.  

Inspired by the true story of a beautiful, troubled young woman, our new single – “She’s High Again” – is available to stream via Spotify, itunes and all major outlets.

- George Panagopoulos - Vocalist/Lyricist

- Adam Neumann - Vocalist, Guitarist

- Ashton Norman - Drummer

-  Steve Pelletier- Backup Vocalist, Bassist
