You may think you’ve seen girlbands before, but it’s been a long time since you’ve seen one quite like the Ultra Girls. Going back to the roots of what it means to be girls in a band, Lucy, Lauren, Amy and Laura are taking the essence of Girl Power but moving it into the 21st Century by adding slick dance moves, funky vocals and lashings of attitude.
Hailing from Leeds, this four-piece are proud Northerners – warning: any Southerners might need subtitles when the girls get into full excitable mode – and want to put their city on the music map. The perfect antidote for anyone sick of dirgy indie or tacky ballads, these are the sort of girls you’d see on a Saturday night leading a nightclub full of people to a made up dance routine.
“We’re young and fun. We want you to dance with us, wear your trackies with us and go crazy. It’s not ‘look how sexy we are’ its girls singing about girls lives, not taking it too seriously or being too polished.”
