The triumvirate Ulysse presents electronic pop songs that harbour both emotion and a heap of energy. They don’t only aim for your head and your heart, but also get the dancing feet moving.

After presenting themselves through EP’s ‘U as in ULYSSE’ and ‘Cashmere Guns’, these young guns are back after a smal hiatus to showcase a hint of Ulysse 2.0. Their singles ‘ACID’ (feat. Belgium’s hip hop golden boy Romeo Elvis) and ‘Mañana’, showed their extra experience resulted in a full-grown sound, boasting their formula of sharp electronic grooves and glowing synths merged with guitar licks and vocals.

As an extension of their music, Ulysse also provides a well considered visual output, handling everything themselves, be it graphic design, photoshoots or music videos. Their videos for ACID’ and ‘Mañana’, both self-directed by band member benoit do quang aka Asian Rocky, are fascinating eye catchers, leaving you in a dreamy, otherworldly haze.

In the meantime Ulysse is working hard on their next release, which will see its release in 2018.
