Ultras – Napoleon
ULTRAS is the moniker of multi-instrumentalist Gav Prentice, at one time a solo project and also a broader collective of Glasgow based musicians, now the three piece return with debut single ‘Napoleon’ set for release July 22nd.
With a fierce industrial groove that drives throughout, ‘Napoleon’ delivers a powerful rock sound akin to early Biffy Clyro with the accent to match. “Violent pop for the patronised” is how Prentice describes the sound, with the theme of putting up a fight running throughout the song, it’s an apt sound for the new single.
After debuting the first home-produced track ‘This Is Where I Fall’ online, ULTRAS were then featured on the list for Glastonbury Festivals Emerging Talent Competition, receiving airplay from BBC 6 Music, Radio Scotland, Amazing Radio and then daytime playlisted on the now defunct XFM Scotland. The newly formed live band then toured the UK and festival circuit in the summer of 2015 and again in support of Admiral Fallow in October of that year.
