Building Post Punk From Ultrviolence
Ultrviolence is described as a “Canadian post-punk collective that moves the listener relentlessly through waves of peaks and valleys drawing you in with its lyrical truth.” Copying and pasting press blurbs is rarely a method I like to use, but in this case it is probably easier than breaking out the thesaurus and looking up post punk.
The reality is that I have been locked in on the post punk thing over the last few months (read that as forever) and I am always happy to hear new stuff to share. “Guillotine” is straight forward, the bass line, guitar plucks and synth flourishes ride through the first verse setting up the gradual build and sustain before release. It is lead track on the EP Forty Knives which will land on Northern Light on May 12th.
