Launchpad: Uma


Uma is a beguiling songwriter plying her trade out of Los Angeles. Her charismatic vocal appeal reminds me of Banks and TALA, drawing you in with subtle inflections. Her new single ‘Golden’ is a gorgeous piece of alt-R&B; well written melodies glide on a dynamic tide, with a stark beat providing rhythmic interest.

“Golden is essentially layers and layers of waiting for more, waiting when you’ve opened yourself up, waiting when you’ve tasted something wonderful and want the rest, waiting for something to shift, waiting when you’ve done all you can do except wait. And even the instrumentation reflects that — stagnant and cyclic — it deepens and swells as the song progresses and as the bass drops in, but most of the elements stay the same, waiting.” – Uma
