Published Nov 23, 2018Nearly a year on from earning himself a production credit on Charli XCX's Pop 2, New York producer umru has delivered an original project of his own.
The 19-year-old's debut EP search result arrives today through PC Music, and can be heard in the players below. The effort features appearances from Chicago-based producer and vocalist Laura Les (a.k.a. osno1), LA-based vocalists Ravenna Golden and Lewis Grant, and Australian-bred singer Banoffee.
"I have trouble describing my music, but this project sounds something like the lights flashing across a cathedral ceiling, reflections of the iPads from which a choir reads their music," umru said of the effort. "Every song was very much a collaborative process with the vocalists—i'm really proud of Laura, Ravenna, Lewis, and Banoffee's work, the result is as much their project as it is mine."
He continued: "The songs were written independently, there's no exact overarching narrative, but it's a collection of frustrations, uncertainties, search queries that make sense to me, expressed as much through the project's synthetic voices as its human ones."
