Ultra Q Share New single/Video "Rocket"

Oakland, CA indie rock/alt band Ultra Q have unveiled their new single Rocket“, taken from their upcoming debut album My Guardian Angel.

Produced by Chris Coady ( TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beach House) My Guardian Angel will be out on 9th June 2023 via Royal Mountain Records. Pre-order your copy here.

On the track, frontman Jakob Armstrong says, “This was a tricky one. Originally there were two demos for the song. The first titled Rocket, and the second titled Bon Iver is a Greasy Weeb (I was doing some fun vocoder stuff). It’s probably good we ended up going with the first. This track feels like a melting point for the album. It finds its place in between the electronic blaze of ‘I Watched Them Go’ and the emo sheen of ‘VR Sex’. It bridges the gap. Lyrically I found the contrast between city nightlife and insomnia to be familiar. It feels comforting and warm even though those two things separately describe quite the opposite.”
