Ummagma is a Canadian-Ukrainian duo comprised of Alexx Kretov (Ukraine) and Shauna McLarnon (Canada). This joint project began as an intense affair with love and sound in Moscow 2003. Ummagma’s musical style is vacillating and broadly influenced “easy positive music” with intense richly-layered landscapes of pulsating sound, a mixture of the ethereal with sublime resonance, beats and rhythm that effectively creates richly layered landscapes. While this music encompasses several genres of music (dream pop, progressive rock, post-rock, ambient/ethereal, shoegaze and post-punk), there is a common remarkable theme, elevating atmosphere and stirring effect in Ummagma’s music.
Comparisons have been made to such performers as the Cocteau Twins, Blonde Redhead, Pink Floyd, Peter Gabriel, AIR, Sigur Ros, Stereolab, Michael Brook, Lush, Kate Bush, Mercury Rev, Talk Talk, Snow Patrol, Ultravox, and Bowery Electric, but everyone will surely find something truly and exclusively UMMAGMA in this music…
In mid-July 2012, Ummagma simultaneously released TWO debut albums: "Ummagma" and "Antigravity" - you can find them here on Soundcloud in two separate sets.
