Pitchfork have previously called Zummo’s trombone work ‘peerless’ and have described his music as ‘the sound of sublimity…that sends shivers down the nervous system.’
In Sept 2019 Zummo released his latest album, Deep Drive, on new Tin Angel Records imprint Unheard Of Hope. Across the five tracks of Deep Drive, Zummo refines the work he describes as ‘composition of and for ensemble’ with five, very different musicians.
That’s why Mabe’s music converts us to sensible sounding boards: through a hypnotic and captivating performance, Mabe sews contemporary elements like shoe gaze and dream pop with ancestral influences that go from Gregorian chants to Sephardi music, transforming them in ingredients of a potent sonic ritual that causes a profound emotional impact.
Lyrically, she was inspired mostly but not entirely by Murphy by Samuel Beckett. The reason why her debut album ‘Pies Sobre la Tierra (Feet on the ground)’ is because Mabe wants to refer to the conciliation of the space that we consider mental with the “physical” and “real”. However, even though there’s a sensation of separation, there’s also a unity to which we’re bound to observe through a lens and operate on it through assumptions and intentions.
