Known for their dreamy uplifting soundscapes and ethereal vocals, their lush melodic gems convey the early 4AD spirit in a unique dreampop, electronic, shoegaze & ambient mix. Creation Records co-founder Joe Foster calls this ''really very cosmic music, made of stardust'', while 4AD's seminal A.R.Kane, with whom Ummagma released the ‘Winter Tale’ EP, refers to Ummagma’s ''sound, emotion and clean cool space''.
Clash Magazine says Ummagma "explores otherworldly climes, matching heavenly vocals to arrangements as complex as they are hopelessly beautiful". Rolling Stone says this is "a full kaleidoscope of sounds, harmonies and musical instruments". Brooklyn Vegan calls this "ethereal pop indebted to Cocteau Twins and much of the rest of 4AD’s 80s output" and The Wire Magazine says "Ummagma create music of otherworldly delicacy. This is cosmic yet introspective dreampop".
Ummagma's 'Compass' LP releases July 26, 2019.
