Back To You

In the spirit of "Superstar" by legendary art-punk band Sonic Youth (who were covering The Carpenters chart-breaking track), here is 'Back to You'. Sonically similar, but content-wise very different.

NIMBY (Not In My Backyard)

Perhaps the most Cocteau Twins' inspired song by Ummagma to date, this song also features a strong pulse-driven effect inspired by Pink Floyd. Need I say more?

Lama

A love for the golden 4AD era, Pink Floyd and the likes of David Sylvian have all been woven into the thread of this music.

Looking forward, but knowing where our roots lieā€¦ I sincerely hope you will all enjoy this Ummagma track. [more inside]
