Cult synth-pop (well, organ-pop?) trio Ubiquitous Meh! caught the ear of FatCat Records back in 2021 as the UK veered from lockdown to lockdown. Unable to practice in person, the band set about remotely piecing together their most idiosyncratic release to date: 'Songs Wrought Wrong'.
The title track is a lofi mini-epic. Old drum machines, bouncy organs and spacey Moog sound old and new all at once, while lead singer Luke Richards croons his proud message of joy in oddness as if from space itself.
"Vintage synth wizardry...a nostalgiac evocation of late-1970s electronic experimentalism."
– Electronic Sound
"Reminds me of the kind of post-punk indie releases John Peel would introduce on his radio show around 1979-80...entertaining and intriguing at the same time."
– Fear and Loathing
"There’s a unique, underground beauty lurking within it."
– The PRSD
"Hooky as hell, mysterious and prudently brilliant."
