17/06/2016 – Ulrika Spacek-Ultra Vivid (2016)

Ulrika Spacek show off their film noir influences on new video Ultra Vision

 

 

2016 will be a year to remember for Homerton’s Ulrika Spacek. Not only have they won over audiences and critics a-like with their incendiary mind-bending live shows, but their debut album, The Album Paranoia, was met with almost universal praise.

 

 

Now they are about to head out on a seven date tour and a longer tour that seems them play for most of September and October around Europe, with notable appearances at Visions and the Paris and Liverpool Psych Fests. To mark this occasion they have released a video for the song Ultra Vision.

 

 

The video features stark shots of a nameless couple living through the malaise that is modern society and what a relationship can be once the spark has gone out. Basically it’s Jean-Paul Sartre’s The Age of Reason directed by Carol Reed! At first you don’t care about the lifeless characters watching static on TV, but as the video, and story, progresses you realise that you are the same as them, and you’re watching just watching stuff to kill time, rather than doing something productive. It’s a strangely moving experience coupled with the sombre, driving beat and rhythmic guitars of Ultra Vision.
