New Music – Ulrika Spacek – Full of Men
Something new for you to chew on. See what you think of Ulrika Spacek, a band formed in Berlin and grown in London!
ALBUM ‘MODERN ENGLISH DECORATION’ DUE JUNE 2ND VIA TOUGH LOVE RECORDS
Speaking about the new track, the band said “Writing ‘Full of Men’ came at an important time writing our second record. It was one of those songs that we knew quite quickly would characterise the second record, it pins a particular era for us. Lyrically it’s quite aggressive for us. Sometimes I feel this world is just so full of men'”.
Ulrika Spacek formed in Berlin in one night, when 14-year-long friends Rhys Edwards and Rhys Williams conceptualised ‘Ulrika Spacek’ and came up with The Album Paranoia as their debut album title. Moving back to London with the intention to record it, they were joined by Joseph Stone (guitars, organ, synths, violin), Ben White (bass) and Callum Brown (drums, percussion), ossifying into the five-piece they are now. The album was released soon after with little forewarning and was accompanied by a year long, near-monthly club night called Oysterland that the band both curated and performed at. Less than 18 months later, the follow up arrives eerily fully formed, somewhat inevitably according to Edwards: “We started making this record as soon as we finished our first. Like our debut, we started with Track One on the album and went from there.”
