With great pleasure we present the mini album Wild Chamber by upsammy.
In many ways Spring seems to the perfect seasonal match for upsammy: no matter the tempo nor intensity, her style is colourful, restorative and carries a tangible promise of new beginnings. So Wild Chamber arrives at the right time, but it is an evergreen package – eight songs to slot into different situations, to speak to different moods, yet come from the same heart. A mini-LP that captures dawn mist, reflecting-pool shimmer, and occasional flashes of brilliant blue light. Swells of bass sag and yawn, time signatures switch up and break down, drums stutter and charge, and gossamer melodic trails are traced like ice skates atop a thawing lake. Innumerable shards of ideas are present, yet the music is airy and uncluttered. Wild Chamber is upsammy at her most pure, sketching sonic miniatures with a precise eye and an inquisitive ear quite unlike anyone else’s right now.

This is rather difficult to describe. It's pretty minimalist with a strong focus on the drumming patterns, yet these are rather gentle and not aggressive. The more the listener progress through the tracks, some melodies start to come in smoothing a bit the edges. I'd recommend listening from beginning to end in one go to get the full scope of this EP.
