Published Jun 30, 2015Emma Olson has become familiar within New York-based arts collective Discwoman — a movement, which as the name implies, shines the spotlight on women in electronic music — but she is perhaps better known as UMFANG. Now, Olson has just announced plans for her next musical offering under that moniker.
UMFANG will release a new album titled Ok on August 4. It will be available both digitally and on cassette through Vancouver-based record label 1080p.
The 11-track album follows up her self-titled debut from earlier this year, which dropped via Videogamemusic.
According to the folks at 1080p, Ok will deliver "amorphous, polyrhythmic techno" that draws inspiration from Latin drum patterns, DJ breaks and minimalist percussion. Repetitive grooves, a blend of straightforward and sci-fi influence sounds, and simple melodies come together to make "approachable, unstuffy music made for everyone."
