Bonus: UMA - Drop Your Soul (feat. Silver Apples)
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.
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.
Recording the EP was quite an intense experience, they recall:
“Apart from being married we both have strong personalities with strong views when it comes to creative expression which can be very challenging.”
