**PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE – Original tickets still valid**
Ultimate Painting are Jack Cooper (Mazes) and James Hoare (Veronica Falls), formed after the two bands toured together and Jack and James’ similar tastes in music and films became clear. Their debut album, released on Chicago indie label Trouble In Mind last October, quickly stole our hearts – and those of many a journalist, where they wracked up 5 star reviews everywhere from The Guardian to The Times. We’re delighted to have them playing their first headline show in Scotland at long last.
For the uninitiated, Ultimate Painting write beautifully crafted breezy pop songs, laden with 2-part harmonies and a sunny demeanor. Their material is frequently compared to ‘Loaded’ era Velvet Underground, there’s certainly a 60s feel to their melodic output, perhaps more closely linked to Jack’s earlier Norman Blake produced band, The Beep Seals.
“Oh, the songwriting! Every arrangement is perfect for the melody, and every melody sticks… Both Mazes and Veronica Falls have made outstanding albums before, but this is surely the best record either Hoare or Cooper have been involved with; together they’re perfect”
5/5 The Guardian
The last time Ultimate Painting were in town was supporting Parquet Courts, this was last year and before their S/T album was released. They have toured America twice and co headlined a European tour with White Fence since then and by the time this show is upon us their 2nd album will be out and we’ll be playing it over and over just like the first one!
