Well, I really wanted to embed the RCRD LBL player above, but Tumblr is a motherfucking piece of shit. Moving right along, this impromptu duo of solo artists is apparently such a new thing that it’s still pretty much breaking news. OMBRE, an ambient electronic act with shoegaze influences, is made up of dreampop goddess Julianna Barwick and Ecuadorean singer/songwriter Helado Negro. Apparently, the two recently met, and in grand Avey Tare/Kría Brekkan style, decided it best to put each of their respective best feet forward toward a common goal: a debut album expected out on August 27th via Asthmatic Kitty. The first single from Believe You Me was featured today on RCRD LBL, making waves in our minds with its sentimental synth atmospherics, Barwick’s spiritually ethereal lullaby, and a resolute beat that keeps all of the aura in line. The sound of OMBRE, just from this brief encounter, really reminds me of what I imagine a Björk song would sound like if Hammock were doing the backing instrumentation. Lovers of ambient music, shoegaze, and emotional electronica, do tha right thing and grab the free MP3 below. Come August 27th, be prepared to reward Barwick and Negro for the ephemeral magic.
