It’s no secret that I’ve been on the heels of the local band UME for some time now. The live show has always been an eye opening experience and over the years the band has progressed from their early edgy abrasive sound and found their melodic ways while maintaining that initial energy.
Before their recent signing with Modern Outsider Records, Rolling Stone called UME one of the best unsigned bands in the country. Signed now, the band is prepping the release of their album Phantoms which is due out August 30th. Catch UME on Friday night showcasing much of the new material while opening for the indie rock legends Mission of Burma.
And check out “Captive” from Phantoms
