Mazes singer-guitarist Jack Cooper and Veronica Falls coleader James Hoare formed London duo Ultimate Painting in 2014, later that year releasing a self-titled debut of pretty, breezy, minimal indie rock, full of mellow rhythms and twinkling guitars. But on September’s Dusk, out via local powerhouse Trouble in Mind Records, Ultimate Painting—who have grown into a fully realized and constantly touring band—take a denser, darker approach, stepping away from the patience-pop that dominated that first record and its follow-up, last year’s Green Lanes. Dusk breaks into a slow-burn Velvet Underground zone as minor, moody melodies are fleshed out by knotty organ, electric piano, and sweeping, lyrical guitar. It’s the best work yet from an already prolific and steadily improving band.
