YAMA UBA "SILHOUETTES" Out today on 12'' LP, CD and streaming. Shipping this week!

Today is the day, after five plus years in the making “Silhouettes” by YAMA UBA is out today on Ratskin Records and Psychic Eye Records. There is no way to overstate the importance or uniqueness of this album existing in the world. To say we are honored to have a hand in releasing this into the world along with our friends and most trusted collaborators Psychic Eye is a monumental understatement. It is a feat of  musically and artistically dark, ethereal, magical sonic wonder that will  hopefully leave as big and beautiful impression onto you as it did to us. 

Artwork by Pearl Thompson of The Cure.

"‘Silhouettes’ is a strong debut album that captures the shifting perspectives of its five-year writing period, and the emergence of Yama Uba’s uniquely crafted sound. With Akiko Sampson's charismatic vocals and rumbling bass combined with Winter Zora's sweeping guitar and saxophone soaring over velvet synthesizers and synthpop beats, Yama Uba makes several nods to their post-punk and darkwave predecessors while creating a sound entirely their own. Throughout each track, Yama Uba emerges as a songwriting unit capable of capturing the complexities of the human spirit, as fragile as it is powerful, as it experiences its own evolution. States Sampson, ‘‘As a whole, 'Silhouettes’ is about personal transformation and self-discovery, and is a reckoning with the power of time"
