NYC searing synth duo UMUVOVA’s debut EP Matter and Masks is inspired by the religious ceremonial preparation of a Virgo Supercluster sub-culture in the common-era year 2793. UMUVOVA’s mercurial four-song EP has melodic hooks throughout, but strays from familiar forms as it progresses, blending synthwave with Radiophonic accents on Burning; Amazon field recordings, trap, and thermogenic synths into the futuristic depravity of Oviri; chamber and footwork elements on the cinematic weFew; and delivering icily dystopian pop introspection on Said Too Much.
