Single Review – Pinkshinyultrablast – Umi

‘Umi’ is the first single to be released from Pinkshinyultrablast’s upcoming studio album Everything Else Matters which is to be released in January by the St. Petersburg shoegaze band. The band and their music was born out of the stagnant music scene in the city saying that “we realised the local indie scene was totally boring and wanted to play something radically different.” The single opens with a siren-like guitar with rapid and tumbling percussion falling upon it. The bass comes in to string these two instrumentals together along with the sweeping, wistful vocals that glaze over the main body of music to give it a sense of balance and add to it’s potential space and atmospheric quality. This allows for the main body of music to fall in and out of this floating melodic ‘mist’ to only emphasise the rhythm and distant urgency of the instrumentals. A soft edged and fluid track that is available on November 10th.
