Asthmatic Kitty‘s Julianna Barwick and Helado Negro first met whilst on tour together in 2010. Post tour, they decided to give collaboration a crack. The result is the amazing musical project that they’re calling OMBRE.
Almost upon us is debut album Believe You Me. Helado had this to say to American record label Asthmatic Kitty:
“We really had no clue what we were going to make and we would just throw things out there and record. The majority of it took place at my personal studio, Island Universe Space. We would just jam or record vocal ideas or whatever; it was all just organic and at the same time we were getting to know each other even more as friends.”
Below is ‘Cara Falsa,’ the first official release to come from OMBRE:
OMBRE’s Believe You Me is out August 21 on Asthmatic Kitty.
