Live on the
Ultracrush is a dream pop & indie rock five-piece hailing from Sydney. Growing up between the Central Coast of NSW and Lake Macquarie, the band first formed in 2017 after meeting in Sydney.
Following indie rock’s long tradition of DIY, Ultracrush set out to record their debut single ‘Swimming’ themselves. With no prior production experience, the band dived into a recording process of brutal trial and error, hopping between bedrooms and living rooms throughout Sydney with a laptop and friends’ borrowed equipment, pushing through recording sessions and discarding several demos before eventually creating ‘Swimming’.
"This is a band who channel the heady nostalgia of Bored Nothing, the airy whimsy of Beach House, the groove of Radio Dept and fill them with small town specifics to make something genuinely moving." — Tommy Faith, Triple J
