UMA´s EP ”Drop Your Soul” is a little surprise. The perfect sound for a quiet big city night. I love the vocals. Call me crazy but i have a 90´s trip hop flash back. I can´t wait for the full album which is planed for early 2013. My favorite track is “Bird” Listen here to the EP and a free single download! UMA I LIKE! And UMA is going on a little tour! Don´t miss it
UMA, are an experimental, electronic pop duo from Berlin. Mixing deep electronic rhythms & bass sounds with haunting and beautiful choir like vocal chants.
Debuting with 5 songs between sound-tinkering avant-garde and soothing catchiness this Berlin based duo (husband & wife) has forged a daring mix of deep electronic rhythms and hauntingly vocal chants. Forming in late 2011 their first EP was recorded in the couple’s idiosyncratic home studio in Berlin using analogue synthesizers/drum machines and digital recording equipment as it aims to sonically and lyrically capture the most elusive everyday moments.
“O child, do not practice austerities!”
The ‘Drop Your Soul’ EP was written in Berlin and Los Angeles and features notable guest musicians such as legendary Silver Apples and Japanese field recording artist Yosi Horikawa.
