UBIQUITOUS SYNERGY SEEKER (USS)
Vocalist/guitarist Ashley Boo-Schultz and hypeman/turntablist Human Kebab have always existed hanging in a sort of myth-like state, allowing the music they make together to first speak for itself, and empowering listeners to take from the sophisticated sound whatever they will. While USS is on a constant quest for meaning, the interpretation of it is largely up to you.
New World Alphabet, the fifth and latest release is all about using your words. More specifically, how you use your words to improve your life. New World Alphabet explores many of life's highs and lows, from the universal feel-good first single “Work Shoes” (co-written with One Republic founding member, Tim Myers) and the golden state-inspired “California Medication”, through to the heavier life experiences like feeling uncomfortable in one’s skin – “Alien”, and hitting rock bottom – “Us” & “Vulcan”.
Perhaps we are all sitting together waiting for dawn to overtake us, and USS will be the ones to play us home when the sun finally starts to rise. Until then, USS is content to take us through its evolution of sound, expanding outward into a universe that doesn't exist for names, or labels, but simply exists because it always had, and always will.
