Ultimate Painting - Ten Street

Jack Cooper of Mazes has been a very busy boy recently. As well as releasing his primary project’s latest album Wooden Aquarium, it is only a few weeks until he unveils the debut LP from his new band Ultimate Painting.

The endeavour is a collaboration between Cooper and James Hoare of indie rockers Veronica Falls. We were first alerted to Ultimate Painting a few months back when they unveiled their self-titled debut single.

Now, with the album’s release getting tantalisingly close, we thought it more than apt for their latest track ‘Ten Street’ to take the title of Friday’s Track of the Day.

The song is yet another piece of infectious songwriting from the pair. It strips back the scuzzier sounds that we are used to hearing from both of the Ultimate Painting members’ usual projects, marrying a soft vocal with some expert finger-picking that suggests the album is set to be one this year’s best winter warmers.

Fans will have to wait until October 28th to get their ears wrapped around the full-length LP, but for now why not kick back and meander your way into the weekend with this perfect snippet of blissed-out guitar pop.
