Wild In Wildlife’ effortlessly wears its references on its sleeve. It is an unmistakable stadium sound synthesis that sonically falls somewhere between Simple Minds, The Sisters Of Mercy and Billy Idol… a shimmering noise-noir-pop production all set to their distinct brand of hypnotic chrome overdrive. Recorded and mixed by long serving band producer Zlaya Hadzic (Sonic Youth / Tortoise) with two tracks also mixed by Robert Harder (Whitey / Brian Eno / Kylie) the end result is arguably their finest hour. Seductive hooks and vocals shine clearly amid the storm, all of which is set to a vicious mechanoid foundation of synthesizers and drum machines; a move that has already set Ulterior crucially apart from their contemporaries.

For a bit for a bit of a taster you can download ‘Big City Black Rain’ now at:

The album is to be released on Speed Records and will be available through both Rough Trade and online through the band’s brand new website. A signed, limited edition hand-silk-screened print comes with the pre-ordered CD and you can also get the T-Shirt! The sleeve artwork is an adaptation of the English contemporary artist and painter and founder of the Neomodern group - Guy Denning’s ‘Where’s Your Famous Golden Touch’.
