Debut album My Guardian Angel


out this Friday via Royal Mountain Records


With the release of their debut album My Guardian Angel this Friday, Ultra Q share their final taste of the record with new single ‘Saturday’.

Speaking of the track, frontman Jakob Armstrong says, “This song was a total accident. I had already started working on what would become various tracks for the album, but up to that point my recording ability was limited to electronic drums. I really wanted to learn how to do simple drum recordings for my demos, so I set up a little 3 microphone kit. Bass drum, snare, and overhead. I made a blank session and just played a drum beat on loop so I could mess with my settings. I thought the beat was interesting so I started adding some deep and epic synths to the track , (similar to Plainsong by The Cure). My next thought was to yell some new order lyrics and then Saturday was born. And yes, I wrote the song on a Saturday.”

One of the most fascinating things a music lover can do is witness the growth of a young artist. It starts as an inkling or a glimmer of natural talent and expands into something vast and formidable.

Ultra Q’s earlier work marked the synthesis of a songwriter’s vision and his band’s ability, forged through an invisible existential threat and an ever-changing world, eager to show what they’ve found while we were all inside. But the new album, released via Royal Mountain Records, soars to heights unimaginable for us lowly, earthbound beings. 

My Guardian Angel offers a deep sonic palette to match Armstrong’s artistic ambition. Wildly vacillating between widescreen pop-punk (‘Klepto’, the impeccably titled ‘VR Sex’), romantic new-wave (‘Rocket’, ‘I Wanna Lose’), and shimmering synth-pop (‘I Watched Them Go’), the album displays Armstrong’s songwriting talents—along with the musicianship of Kevin Judd and brothers Chris and Enzo Malaspina—conceived and recorded for maximum impact.



Emotional growing pains, sleepless nights, the ethereal allure of romance, and the notion of sound being so closely attached to memory are all wrapped up in clever guitar interplay reminiscent of the band’s formative influences, but delivered in an identity all their own. The words are attached to feelings we think are going to slip away from us in the fading and tarnished pallor of adulthood; truth be told, those feelings emerge just as freshly the older we get.

And that is the gift of My Guardian Angel, the implicit understanding that growth is merely a tool we use to better process the past slipping away from us.
