New single 'Baby' out April 12th 2022
Ultraflex returns, now with BABY! The flamboyant twosome have birthed their 2nd single of 2022, a suave yet punchy love song called ‘Baby’. It’s lyrics liken dancefloor-flirtation to a duel, in which you have nothing to lose except perhaps your reputation (which is, admittedly, long lost). The narrator claims not to be afraid - which honestly sounds like a lie. However, bravery is not about fearlessness, but as John Wayne put it: “courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway”.
Accompanying the song are never-before-seen wedding photos of the band (including one future baby) and a good-vibes-only music video, filmed around the band’s unforgettable concert in Cairo, Egypt last year.
“Although the song is about romantic endeavours, we realised afterwards that it is also about our artistic collaboration. It emphasises the importance of taking risks (otherwise “you’ve already lost”) and indicates that whatever happens tomorrow, we’ve got each other right now, and that’s what counts - the power of the moment is worth whatever the future brings, whether it’s happy-ever-after or heartbreak.”
"The biggest and most welcome surprise we’ve encountered this year so far"
"A blast of extrovert pop that plays by its own rules"
"Nordic superduo Ultraflex stretch their muscles with strutting disco"
"A passport to teleport the listener to dancefloors in hot climates"
Ultraflex is an interdisciplinary collaboration between Farao (NO) and Special-K (IS). Debut album 'Visions of Ultraflex' was released in 2020 to critical and popular acclaim, winning both The Icelandic Music Awards 2021 for 'Best Electronic Album' and Kraumur Awards for 'Best Album', besides collecting nominations to additional international awards.
Ultraflex’s sound is inspired by the disco, italo and funk of the 80’s, blending it with new-age sensibilities, unexpected jazz chords and melodic twists. The result is a catchy, contemporary whirlwind of dance floor weirdness, nodding to their ancestors in the historical lineage of spectacular electronic music. The duo’s material is both kitsch and high concept – pushed through a contemporary pop culture filter Ultraflex creates their own brand new lotion carefully tailored to your needs
