ULTIMATE PAINTING SHARE FIRST VIDEO FOR ‘RIVERSIDE’

UK, EU AND US TOUR BEGINS TODAY; LONDON SHOW THIS THURSDAY AT THE 100 CLUB

BAND IN SESSION FOR LAUREN LAVERNE ON BBC 6 MUSIC YESTERDAY

New duo Ultimate Painting, comprised of James Hoare (Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (Mazes), are set to embark on their UK, Europe and US tour tonight. It starts in Bristol and takes in a show at The 100 Club this Thursday. Yesterday, the band were live in session with Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 6 Music, performing their theme tune of sorts ‘Ultimate Painting’ and ‘Riverside’.

To celebrate this happy news, they’ve shared the video for ‘Riverside’ – their first ever video, in fact – via Noisey. It was directed by NYC-based film maker Elizabeth Skadden

Skadden: “I was inspired by the theme of autonomy within the song to create this piece featuring a small child testing his independence on a day out with his single father. Shot on discontinued super 8 film, the pair wake up and have a run around a cemetery before dad carries our protagonist back home. We see the son riding a park train all by himself in the organ break, foreshadowing his future autonomous self.”

Having both been brought up on a heady stream of 60s bands and with a mutual appreciation of classic recording techniques, Jack and James set out to collaborate the old fashioned way, not allowing their music to be touched by anything digital.
The entirety of their debut was recorded straight to tape in James’ flat over a few months. It unravels and explodes outwards, at times meandering through a sparse dim lit cave and at others soaring up above the trees led by the perfect melody. The whole record feels like the rural romanticism of Ray Davies crossed with the cosmopolitan chic of early-Seventies NYC.
