about

After an EP and 2 singles under their belts, Ultrafeedy have felt it necessary to release a full- length album to be lost amongst the rabble of countless bands releasing music independently. The 10-track debut began production in late 2015 at Alchemix Studios, with all overdubs being tracked at lead singer Reuben Aptroot’s home studio. It features 2016 singles Stonapop and Private Education as well as new songs Slaves Of Substance, I Don’t Believe In Nothing No More and fan favourite #1 Son.

The title Aggressive Sincerity refers to the lyrical theme running through the album. They are an honest, direct and sometimes blunt commentary of trying to find one’s place in society. There are also observations on the binge/party culture of young people and personal struggles with mental health issues that are all too common these days.

However bleak this may seem, these stories are packaged in boundless energy and power pop sensibility. Drawing on influences from So-Cal punk, desert rock and local grunge revival outfits, Ultrafeedy focus on recapturing their spirited live performances. Not wanting to sound over produced, a conscious effort was made to keep the recordings raw, with most of the guitars being tracked in one day. These recordings were then mixed back at Alchemix by long time collaborator and friend Marly Lüske.

about

Ultrafeedy Brisbane, Australia

When 2 young up-start's from the northern suburbs of Brisbane decided to temporarily put down their beers and pick up some instruments, the ever-loud rock outfit Ultrafeedy was born. Bursting with energy, and some hearty banter in between, these guys take performing their art seriously (unlike their band bio). ... more

Track Name: I Don't Believe In Nothing No More
I don't believe in nothing no more
And I fail to see, fail to be, fail to me
So you can keep your cool cities
Dot your I's and cross your T's
Cause I just don't believe
No I just don't believe
I don't believe in nothing no more

I'm in a great amount of pain
My life's going down the drain
But I can't take the blame
No I can't take the blame

Fell short of my desire
Extinguishing the fire
Made myself a liar
Heart rate rises higher

Try to slow my pace
It's written on my face
Now that I've got the taste
Been driven to disgrace

I don't believe in nothing no more x2

Keep on keeping on
Couldn't slow down if I wanted to x2

chorus

I just don't believe in nothing
Tell me that I'm good for something
Track Name: Every Song I Ever Write Is About You
Every Song I Ever Write Is About You

Need to top me up
Enough is never enough
Don't know how to hurt
So just act tough
All I can hope is that it keeps you

Far away yeah
Far away yeah
Throw away all the regret
Trying hard just to forget
I'll find a way yeah

Now I'm falling down
Because I think too much
The shortest straw
I try to clutch
The closer I get the further I'm

(chorus)

When you're feeling blue
At least it's something to do
Just one more step
To keep away from you
The less that I think, the further I'm

(chorus)

I’ll find away yeah x4
Track Name: Private Education
She likes the boys who play football
'Cause they don't treat her well
She goes a million miles an hour
And then she wonders why she's still in hell

He plays call of duty
When he's not on Facebook
He busts his ass for a paycheck
Just so he can go out for a look
(We got to celebrate the weekend)

I want to get my kids a private education

And I'm so sick of talking
About my big dumb head
Sick of trying to find the answers
When I should be giving up instead

I'm gonna need some money
Guitar might pay the rent
But it won't give my kids a chance
Unless they want to turn out like their dad
(Would it be so bad?)

chorus

I want them to be all they can be
An opportunity to get the opportunities they deserve
A chance to be heard

chorus
Track Name: Blurry
Blurry
Why's everybody so blurry
And my stomach is churning
And my mind is still hurting

chorus

Blurry
I'm still disconcerting
And my chest is still burning
And my heart is still yearning

Track Name: Phantom Rat
Phantom Rat

your so cool kid, stay in school kid and don't you step outside the line
but your breaking the mould from what i'm told

PHANTOM RAT x 4

"we're from the coast" you boast
but i dont have a clue as to where that came from
cause you all look the fucking same
the city is so shitty and the ocean is so pretty
our uniform keeps us all fitting in
a sleeve tatt and a flat brim cap
well you can have your beach, cause i know that your a

Track Name: Stonapop
Keep your name on my lips, say
You always gave me your time
Got your thoughts in my head today
Sometimes I'm way out of line

Gotta say I'm a cheap skate
Are you sure that's all right?
Got the feeling your missing me
When I turn off the light

I'm trying to see out the night
Cause I want you to see I was right
and I want you to see what you do to me
I used to try but now I don't want to fight

Past don't pull on me backwards
Future please take your time
Love, you may as well stick around
But just keep it to yourself

chorus x2
Track Name: #1 Son
He puts her on the shelf
in sickness and in health
for better or for worse
his love is just a curse

He's the number one son x 4

He puts her on the shelf
in sickness and in health
for better or for worse
his love is such a curse

He's the number one son x 4

He's the number one son x 4
Track Name: Tragedy
This ones for all the pretty girls I loved in High School
All the ones that were never there for me
And this ones for the people that still believe in me
Should've seen just how I used to be

Every mistake becomes a tragedy
Every fumble helps me fall apart
Every mistake ends in a tragedy
Every fuck up brings me back to the start

This ones for all the strangers that never notice me
Or as far as I can tell
And this ones for the friends that still deceiving me
I guess I'll see you all in hell

Every mistake becomes a tragedy
Every fumble helps me fall apart
Every mistake ends in a tragedy
Every fuck up brings me back to the start


[Every stupid thing that you said
It repeats in my head
Like the window wipers on my way home]x2

Every mistake becomes a tragedy
Every fumble helps me fall apart
Every mistake ends in a tragedy
Every fuck up brings me back to the start
Track Name: Slaves Of Substance (Traffic Light Song)
Touch it, But don't hold it
Just enough, For you to judge it
Greens go, And red's stop
And orange is you shouldn't
but you do it anyway

Live it, But don't breathe it
Just ghosts, Who still need it
Greens go, And red's stop
And orange is you shouldn't
but you do it anyway

So high
Be mine baby

Avoid all consequence
Just slaves of substance
Greens go, And red's stop
And orange is you shouldn't
but you do it anyway

You think it's indulgence
It's not greed, it's compulsive
You know you should stop
It seems so easy
but you do it anyway

So high
Be mine baby

I don't want to die
But I can't stand the thought of living
Track Name: Triggers
They used to get me but now I've strayed
Took it's time for my mind to change
They can't get to me anymore
So I better go make some more

Believe in now
Took my own vow
To never stay the same
You got to know
That when you're low
Embrace a triggered change

It's getting easier now to see
What kind of difference it makes to me
The things that used to freak me out
Are the things I've come to doubt

(chorus)
