Ultraflex is the new team up of Farao and Special-K, who revealed themselves last month with the flirtatious “Work Out Tonight”, the first song shared from the forthcoming album Visions of Ultraflex (due out on October 30). They’re back today with another new gem called “Never Forget My Baby” and a superb video.
Continuing with the 80s dance-pop style, as filtered through the two creators’ modern slickness and rose-tinted nostalgia, “Never Forget My Baby” is a dynamite track. It vaults forwards on a glistening array of intermingling rhythms and synths, coming together to form a crystalline sound. Farao’s voice is dreamy, coming from inside a deep and sensual dream, luring us into her colourful teenage bedroom to swoon and fantasise along with her. “Never Forget My Baby” is a stylish, carefree and utterly irresistible – no less than you would expect from these two.
The video for “Never Forget My Baby”, directed by Jóhanna Rakel, takes the playfulness of the song even further, with the duo saying:
“Yvonne Winona is admiring herself in the mirror, listening to her go to ‘putting on lotion’ song ’Never Forget My Baby’. She is her own gaze. All of a sudden Ultraflex appears on her bed.”
