ULTRA SUNN (BE) have released another new track

  Van Muylem    23 februari 2024

ULTRA SUNN have released another new track, giving a deeper look into what's to come from their upcoming debut full-length! 'Some Ghost Could Follow' is out everywhere now and is a song that takes up a recurring theme – of which the different facets are explored throughout the band's forthcoming record, 'US', out worldwide on April 19th via Artoffact Records.

On the release, the band comments:
"The difference here is that we are a little more intimate and personal about ourselves and with you. With this track, we invite you to think about these ghosts who could follow you in the night as you wander in a city that you know too well. The streets are paved with regrets, but some ghosts seem so much weaker in the end. In the verses we mention insomnia, resilience and the memories that come back to haunt you like a hallucinatory apparition, directly and deliberately interrupted by the mantra of the chorus, like a magic spell, a prayer, a call to order."

Adding that the composition has a more orchestral aspect, comparatively, and is "somewhat more feminine. We thought of the French-Canadian singer Mylène Farmer, who is a great source of inspiration for us in her way of being, her strength, her character and her incredible stage performances. Strong and powerful women are often a source of inspiration in their gestures, their relationship with the body and in their unique sensitivity."

The band has also released the second part of a live video series. Today’s video follows their live video for 'Shake Your Demons' (which was released just a couple of weeks ago and can be seen here) and sees the band experimenting with different lighting and color schemes, highlighting the twilight aspect and intensity of the track.

On the forthcoming album, ULTRA SUNN shares the following statement: “The album is called ‘US’, like the initials of ULTRA SUNN. In addition to being a reference to two records that we love, VU (Velvet Underground) and AM (Arctic Monkeys), it reflects the more personal texts in this album – the bond between us (Gaelle and Sam) being stronger than ever, a new musician joining us on tour, and the bond that we have created with our audience / how the concerts are carried and experienced all together with strength and love. It’s our album, it’s yours, it’s about US.”


Embarking on multiple legs of touring throughout this year with select festival dates (Sick New World, Catch One, Resistanz, Dark Malta, Verboden, Amphi), the band will embark on an EU / UK run before switching continents. Then, the USA tour will take the band from Denver, CO through Seattle, WA, when they will return to Europe for another EU leg, including a special album release party at the Orangerie au Botanique in their home town of Brussels on June 1st.

In June of 2023, the duo released their first track via new label home, Artoffact Records, ‘Broken Monsters’, which was followed later in the year by ‘This Is Not About You’ to wide acclaim. With the second single, came the announcement that they were working on their first full-length LP, for which the specifics are now revealed!

The contemporary EBM/Coldwave/New Beat sensation hails from Brussels, Belgium and was formed in late 2019 by frontman Sam Huge and keyboardist/producer Gaelle Souflet. In 2023, they were joined on stage by keyboardist and percussionist Alexis Andrigo. The name ULTRA SUNN stems from Gaelle and Sam's reflection on aesthetics, light, and the symbolism of the sun, embodying the couple's ideals.

In 2020 with the release of their hit "Keep Your Eyes Peeled," the duo gained widespread recognition, performing concerts all around the world, from Brussels to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Calgary, Sao Paulo, Mexico, Bogota, Berlin, London, and beyond.

ULTRA SUNN expresses a desire for modernity through its themes, fresh approach to sounds and collaborations (Kontravoid, Kris Baha, Curses, Sarin), while being the heirs of the famous Sound Of Belgium and classical EBM.

Their 3 previously released EPs called ‘Night is Mine’, ‘Body Electric’ and 'Kill Your Idols’, all borrow from their activities in classical arts and fashion shows, their New Beat and EBM inspirations and their desire to create dancing and luminous hymns about self improvement, gender equality, and fighting against anxiety. Always with an inclusive, powerful and positive spirit.
