Ultra Q Premiere New Single/Video “Saturday”

Ultra Q Premiere New Single/Video "Saturday"

Ahead of the release of their new album ‘My Guardian Angel‘ on 9th June via Royal Mountain Records, Oakland, CA indie rock/alt band Ultra Q is sharing their latest single Saturday“.

Commenting on the track, frontman Jakob Armstrong says:

This song was a total accident. I had already started working on what would become various tracks for the album, but up to that point my recording ability was limited to electronic drums.

I really wanted to learn how to do simple drum recordings for my demos, so I set up a little three microphone kit. Bass drum, snare, and overhead. I made a blank session and just played a drum beat on loop so I could mess with my settings. I thought the beat was interesting so I started adding some deep and epic synths to the track – similar to Plainsong by The Cure. My next thought was to yell some new order lyrics and then Saturday was born. And yes, I wrote the song on a Saturday.”
