Ultravox are a British new wave band. They are one of the primary exponents of the British electronic pop music movement of the late 1970s/early 1980s.

The band has been led by two different frontmen who never played together in the band at the same time. From 1974 until 1979, John Foxx was frontman and main driving force behind Ultravox. Foxx left the band to embark on a solo career. Following Foxx’s departure, with the three remaining members in hiatus, Midge Ure took over as lead singer, guitarist, and frontman. Ure revitalised the band and drove it to commercial success lasting until the mid-1980s. Ure left the band in 1987 after establishing a solo career and the group disbanded for a while. A new line-up, led by sole original band member keyboard player/violinist Billy Currie, was formed in 1992, but achieved little success.

The band’s best-known line-up of Currie, bassist Chris Cross, drummer Warren Cann and Ure reformed in 2008 and performed a series of reunion shows in 2009 and 2010 before releasing the Brilliant album in May 2012, their first together since the Lament album in 1984.

Vienna” is a song by British new wave band Ultravox from their 1980 fourth studio album of the same name. It was released as the album’s third single on 9 January 1981 by Chrysalis Records and features Midge Ure singing the lead vocal.
