Ummagma is a Canadian-Ukrainian indie duo, whose dream pop shoegaze front began in Moscow, where they recently made enough noise to land a full-page spread in Rolling Stone Russia. The duo has won Alternative Eurovision competitions for 2 years (Amazing Radio in 2013; Pure FM in 2014), as well as 2 awards at the 2013 Australian Independent Music Video Awards (incl. best pop international video). But that’s not the only feather in their cap, having also caught the attention of Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins) and Malcolm Holmes (OMD), both of whom remixed tracks for release in autumn 2014.
Ummagma combines their love of indie rock, synthpop and electronica to create their own unique brand of “dreamgaze” power pop, with emphasis on mesmerizing ethereal vocals and lush reverb-laced soundscapes. Loaded with positivity, Ummagma offers a soundtrack of reverie for both trailblazers and stargazers.
This single follows Ummagma's 2 debut LPs 'Antigravity' and 'Ummagma' (2012). Also check the latest 'Lama' extended EP (May 16, 2014) ummagma.bandcamp.com/album/lama-2
[both released on Emerald & Doreen Recordings]. Mastered by producer Marc Joy (Mike Peters, Golden Fable, Primal Scream, Bernard Butler, Lights That Change).
LOOK FORWARD to Ummagma's collaborative LP with Moscow-based Sounds of Sputnik soundsofsputnik.bandcamp.com/album/new-born
on Ear to Ear Records (release date: August 25, 2014).
