Ultimate Painting, the collaborative pairing of James Hoare (of Veronica Falls) and Jack Cooper (of Mazes), return September 30th with the release of their third lp, Dusk, via label home Trouble In Mind Records. First taste off the new album, “Bills“, below . . .
Per the genesis of the track, Jack from UP notes “(we) wanted to do something that was a bit more like how James and I play guitar live. People always seem to respond when we stretch things out, so I brought this sort of very horizontal song that I thought might be a platform. It didn’t quite turn out like that but it rarely does. Songs like ‘Bees’ by Caribou, ‘Moonshake’ by Can… they’re almost like graphs or an EKG monitor. We tried to do something like that. The lyrics are as literal as we could ever get. Somewhere between Lightnin’ Hopkins’ ‘Bad Luck And Trouble’ and Destiny’s Child’s ‘Bills Bills Bills.'”
