An ode to Saturdays and Rockstar Games, Ultra Q deliver debut album ‘My Guardian Angel’

Ultra Q’s Jakob Armstrong, son of Green Day’s frontman, unleashes his rebellious spirit in the new track “Saturday.” It’s an ode to weekends, rocking out to Rockstar Games.

Ultra Q, the unstoppable force of alternative rock fronted by the exceptionally talented Jakob Armstrong, son of the legendary Green Day’s Billie Joe, has unleashed their highly anticipated debut album, “My Guardian Angel.” Released through the esteemed Royal Mountain Records today, this musical masterpiece showcases the band’s exponential growth and unrivaled musical prowess, propelling their sound to uncharted heights.

Within the vibrant tapestry of “My Guardian Angel,” Armstrong’s artistic vision flourishes, painting a sonic landscape that is nothing short of breathtaking. The album effortlessly traverses various genres, seamlessly blending widescreen pop punk, the intoxicating allure of romantic new wave, and the mesmerizing shimmer of synth pop.

Each track is a testament to Armstrong’s mastery of songwriting, with every note serving as a testament to the extraordinary musicianship displayed by Kevin Judd and the indomitable Malaspina brothers, Chris and Enzo.

The album is a testament to the band’s evolution since their 2019 EP, “We’re Starting to Get Along,” and its follow-up, “In a Cave in a Video Game” in 2020. Ultra Q’s earlier work revealed a synthesis of Armstrong’s vision and the band’s ability, honed during a time of existential threats and a rapidly changing world. However, “My Guardian Angel” takes their music to unimaginable heights, leaving listeners in awe of their talent.

Produced by Chris Coady, known for his work with acclaimed bands like TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Beach House, “My Guardian Angel” offers a mesmerizing sonic experience. The album is a rollercoaster of emotions, delving into themes of emotional growth, sleepless nights, the allure of romance, and the inseparable connection between sound and memory.

Ultra Q’s clever guitar interplay, reminiscent of their formative influences, adds depth and authenticity to their music. With Armstrong’s distinctive vocals leading the way, the album captures the essence of youthful sentimentality and the bittersweet realization that the past remains fresh in our minds as we age.

“My Guardian Angel” is a gift to fans who have eagerly awaited Ultra Q’s full-length debut. It serves as a reminder that growth is a vital tool for processing the memories that slip away from us over time. This album solidifies Ultra Q’s position as a band to watch, offering a unique and captivating sound that sets them apart from their contemporaries.

Fans and music lovers can now immerse themselves in the sonic journey of “My Guardian Angel,” available now on all major streaming platforms. Ultra Q’s rise continues, and their trajectory shows no signs of slowing down.
