Ultra Q raucously re-introduces themselves with “Bowman”



Being the son of one of the most famous rockstars on the planet can be a tough endeavor sometimes. However, Ultra Q (fronted by Jakob Armstrong, the son of Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong) has reemerged after a quiet 2020 to announce a new EP produced by PUP alongside a fantastic lead single that is sure to carve out their space in the world of alternative music.

As their first release on Royal Mountain Records, “Bowman” carries itself with a Strokes-y swagger that’s a long way away from their debut album that they released under the name Mt. Eddy. Armstrong, along with brothers Enzo and Chris Malaspina and Kevin Judd, have embraced an early 2000s post-punk flair that’s coming back in style with recent albums like Citizen’s Life in Your Glass World and Foxing’s Draw Down the Moon, and if it’s anything like “Bowman”, their forthcoming EP should be one to pay attention to when it drops on November 19. Regarding the song, the band shared that —

“The name of the song is in reference to the character “David Bowman” from 2001 Space Odyssey. We had been using samples from the movie in a lot of our demos and we thought it would be funny to be literally connected to it.Lyrically the song is about how I romanticize online relationships and the way in which I grew up more connected to technology than people.”
