James Hoare and Jack Cooper hit it off when their respective bands -- Veronica Falls and Mazes -- were on tour together and decided to work on songs together. Ultimate Painting was born.
The result is Ultimate Painting's debut album which will be out this fall on Trouble in Mind. The record has a clean gentle vibe, showcasing the pair's ear for melody and understanding of the understated (think VU, The Bats, Jonathan Richman). Ultimate Painting's "vague theme song" will be the first single and it makes its premiere in this post. Stream it below.
Ultimate Painting tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Jul 2014.
