BAND OF THE WEEK | ULTRAS
Scottish alt-folk band ULTRAS aren’t your traditional three-piece band. Exploring elements of alternative rock, pop and traditional Scottish folk they have produced an album that is difficult to categorise.
This isn’t a bad thing. Far from it. Having taken inspiration from main man Gav Prentice’s love of hip-hop mixtapes, ULTRAS worked with six different producers, including Miaoux Miaoux’s Julian Corrie, creating an undulating, diverse sound that must be listened to in its entirety in order to be fully appreciated.
‘Team Handed’ is the most recent single to be taken from their self-titled album and is another example of the range the band has to offer; a forlorn, emotional effort that pulls at the heartstrings, building layer upon layer, before drifting peacefully away into the distance.
‘Team Handed’ by ULTRAS, is out now and is taken from the self-titled album due for release on 28th April, via Hello Thor Records and Instinctive Racoon.
ICYMI here’s their previous single ’This IS Where I Fall’.
