The Connecticut rock quartet known as the Ultra Violets have released their latest EP record, “All the Noise in Your Head.” The EP is composed of six original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 23 minutes. It has been published as an independent release without support from the corporate music infrastructure. Stylish, raw, and refreshingly unique at a time when rock ‘n’ roll perhaps needs something new more than ever, “All the Noise in Your Head” is a fresh tone from the state which brought Rivers Cuomo, Keith Richards and John Mayer to global acclaim.
The Ultra Violets cite as main artistic influences only four sources of inspiration, the Flaming Lips, Radiohead, Muse, and the White Stripes. Their official Facebook page has the crew describing their music with the following tongue-in-cheek list of genres and subgenres: “rock, indie, psychedelic, space rock, folk, garage, ummm…”
Their bio page describes them as “a band out of northwest CT who play songs about space, love, monsters, and whatever else is buzzing around in their brains.”
Speaking of the lyrical themes and overall tone of their new EP, the Ultra Violets write, “Our album says that there are many colorful moods and circumstances that make up all of us, and that there is a fitting feeling, sound, or song for all of them. ‘All the Noises in your Head’ was an attempt to bring together many of the various types of songs that we produce as a band and perform live. So all in all, this is the big picture of what we are as a band right now, encompassed in just a few songs, a glimpse of things to come, when these noises continue to work themselves out into whatever we make next.”
The Ultra Violets have been playing together in various incarnations for a little more than two years.
“We formed a couple years ago,” they write, “and have had many adventures playing shows all over CT. We have a fan base extending outwards from our home base of Torrington, and are looking forward to sharing our music from this EP and beyond with a wider audience.”
Music fans around the world can be part of this wider audience beginning August 23, 2014, when “All the Noise in Your Head” by the Ultra Violets becomes available globally online at http://www.amazon.com/All-Noise-Your-Head-EP/dp/B00MD61JCM/.
