Ultraflex may be a new project, but you’ll find two familiar faces with strong musical pedigree in the duo’s members: Kari Jahnsen, aka Farao, and Katrín Helga Andrésdóttir of Special-K and Daughters of Reykjavík.
Now both based in Berlin, which functions as Ultraflex’s home turf, they debuted a few months ago with the soaring “Olympic Sweat”, but now they’re returning with something a little different with their new single “Work Out Tonight”.
In contrast to the aloof and celestial debut track, their new single brings things back down to earth with a slinky, strutting, dancefloor monster. The band’s trademarks remain in place: disco influences and big bag of athletic imagery, and “Work Out Tonight” mixes whispering verses that hum with intensity and a chorus that sparkles like sun on the water.
Of the song and its video, the band say, “It's a song about the gym. You know, all that sweat can make you real thirsty… ‘Work Out Tonight’ is the first in a trilogy of Ultraflex videos directed by genius artist and our good friend Okay Kaya. Bathing, sunshine, pickles... We decided to give our fans a special glimpse into our everyday lifestyle.”
