ULTRA DOLPHINS debut album, briefly titled “Mar”, will finally see the light of day on November 7th in both the CD and LP formats. These 12 tracks span a solid 30 minutes and represent a fairly major departure from the band..s previous spazz-oriented, garage band freak-outs. Without losing focus on songwriting, the off-kilter structures move continually forward building up frantic but calculated momentum. Several piano tracks accompany drums and noisy guitars along with well-placed vocal melodies. The result is a dizzying but somehow unified listening experience which features a band at the height of their creative prowess.
To celebrate the release of this long-overdue full-length, the band will embark on a solid east coast week+ party to showcase the new songs publicly. ULTRA DOLPHINS should also have both formats of “Mar” at said dates (most of which are with Level Plane’s mighty GOSPEL):
10/21 – Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Fireproof – w/ Dactyl, You Will Die, Bacon Wagon (Sweden)
