about

"Back in 2013, Dani Charlton crowned them the winners of the Alternative Eurovision. A really nice breathy bit of electronic postrock dreampop postrock and a bit of shoegaze in there as well. Definitely a lot of reverb. Loving that - well up my street" - Shell Zenner, Amazing Radio

"I love the sound, the emotion, the clean cool space. If Underworld or Chemical Bros did Lama, it would be proclaimed an instant classic" - A.R. Kane

"This is really very cosmic music. Made of stardust. I particularly like Ummagma, whose magical sounds will touch you or you have no heart!" - Joe Foster (Creation Records)

"A nice slice of electronic pop with a psych folk twist" - Ray Dickaty (Spiritualized)

"This is a really brilliant post-rocky shoegazey woozy ambient thing. It's absolutely beautiful" - Dani Charlton, Amazing Radio

"I was originally intrigued with Ummagma's music - very powerful, very dreamy - right on the mark. This led us to work together on their collaboration with Sounds of Sputnik. Very cool this new album. The calibre of the producers they're working with here is a definite mark of approval" - Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver, Brian Jonestown Massacre)

"Ummagma are at the forefront of new shoegaze and dreampop... lifts you gently weightless into orbit, to be suspended in a sea of twinkling synthesizer stars...a first class ticket into hyperspace" - UK producer Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid)

Alongside five original tracks, this album features remixes from Cocteau Twins legend Robin Guthrie, Wales' celebrated Lights That Change, and Malcolm Holmes of Orchestral Maneouvres in the Dark (OMD).

Ummagma consists of Shauna McLarnon, who hails from Canada's Yukon, and Alexander Kretov, who is from Ukraine. Since bursting onto the music scene in 2012, they have made a significant impact on the underground music scene. Their potent combination of uplifting and melancholic textured dreampop, shoegaze, postpunk, ambient and electronica rapidly gaining them a sizeable international following despite the numerous issues they've faced living between Canada and Ukraine.

‘Frequency’ follows the band's two debut LPs 'Antigravity' and 'Ummagma', which they simultaneously released in 2012. This release represents a slight departure from the first two albums, which whisked the listener through the romanticism of first meetings, big love, adventures abroad and optimistic dreaming through to the realities of birth, loss, death and departure. In contrast, 'Frequency' explores such themes as space and distance, timelessness, escapism, and the search for tranquility.

Canadian-Ukrainian duo Ummagma have blazed quite a trail for themselves in their short history. They've landed press coverage and radio play in more than 50 countries, and have managed to strike an endearing chord with a good number of 'first wave' shoegaze and dreampop artists, especially from Creation Records and early 4AD rosters.

While Ummagma may have been influenced by the likes of Cocteau Twins, David Sylvian, Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd and Slowdive, they don't immediately wear their influences on their sleeve. They have their own beautiful and unmistakeable sound and lead you on sonic trips and awesome detours, but they ultimately tell a story in an aesthetic that is wonderfully unique, invigorating and somehow loaded with hope.

Track Name: Orion
Cosmic lover
Made up my mind
I’m not going home
This is where I’ll stay
With you
Long as you’ll be here
So will I
In our space
In our space

Orion is closer
Now than ever
Get to know the universe
Around us
I can feel your movement
When I see you
Every morning
Every moment
Every motion
Whenever we drift away
Track Name: Lama
Sorry how I slide
All the way down low
All the way so can’t even find me

Funny how I fly
In the thick of rules
In the thick, does nothing but bind me

Hard to say but time to say it
Running in circles chasing your own tail
Hard to say but time to say it
Time to make time for making your own way

Do do do
Not alone, not living in solace
Do do do
On my road and this one is toll-less
No no no don’t say to me
You’re on your own in loneness
Not quite so, no you’re never alone no
Do do do
Not alone, not living in solace
No no no don’t say to me
Track Name: Lama (Robin Guthrie Remix)
Sorry how I slide
All the way down low
All the way so can’t even find me

Funny how I fly
In the thick of rules
In the thick, does nothing but bind me

Hard to say but time to say it
Running in circles chasing your own tail
Hard to say but time to say it
Time to make time for making your own way

Do do do
Not alone, not living in solace
Do do do
On my road and this one is toll-less
No no no don’t say to me
You’re on your own in loneness
Not quite so, no you’re never alone no
Do do do
Not alone, not living in solace
No no no don’t say to me
Track Name: Lama (Malcolm Holmes' OMD Remix)
Sorry how I slide
All the way down low
All the way so can’t even find me

Funny how I fly
In the thick of rules
In the thick, does nothing but bind me

Hard to say but time to say it
Running in circles chasing your own tail
Hard to say but time to say it
Time to make time for making your own way

Do do do
Not alone, not living in solace
Do do do
On my road and this one is toll-less
No no no don’t say to me
You’re on your own in loneness
Not quite so, no you’re never alone no
Do do do
Not alone, not living in solace
No no no don’t say to me
Track Name: Lama (Lights That Change Remix)
