    Ultra Lights is a post-punk band based out of Atlanta, GA spearheaded by singer-songwriter John Robinson. Robinson’s song writing style brings out a familiar yet uniquely punchy sound that touches on early 90’s college rock and 70’s proto-punk influences. His lyrics describe classic tales of the human condition; dreams of escape, getting wasted, inevitable failure, and every now and then, rising triumphant. Ultra Lights’ tightly written anthems attempt to bring on a sense of collective revival within a rapidly evolving and chaotic world.The recent debut of Ultra Lights as a four piece band comes after a five year gestation period of writing and dabbling in new sounds. While writing timeless ear worms has always been a part of his musical path with projects such as Turf War (2008-2014) and Illegal Drugs (2016-2019), Robinson’s new sound with Ultra Lights has a genuineness and maturity that only comes from patience and persistence. With influences like Modern Lovers, Pavement, Wire, and Archers of Loaf, Ultra Lights brings fresh guitar licks and perennial hooks that cut right to the core and offer a sense of redeeming honesty to rock and roll.The project didn’t have a name for a few years (though there were ideas) and the clumsy post-pandemic years made finding official bandmates a much longer, drawn out process. Finally things came together in Summer of 2023 when longtime bud Gus Fernandez of projects like Pony League, Cute Boots (and many others) signed up to play drums, and John met Alex Wharton, a work buddy turned band bassist, while working the restaurant grind. John then asked wife Leela Hoehn to join the band as the second guitar player to complete the group, making this the couple’s first musical project together.Ultra Lights’ debut vinyl single Nostalgia b/w Clockin is being released through Chunklet Industries on May 17th.
