News: Unknown Mortal Orchestra sign to Jagjaguwar
It has just been announced that Unknown Mortal Orchestra have been signed to the very excited Jagjaguwar (Bon Iver, Sharon Van Etten).
Led by songwriter and guitarist Ruban Nielson, UMO is a perfect concoction of psychedelia and soul, with bassist Jacob Portrait and drummer Greg Rogrove completing the line-up.
The three piece will join Grizzly Bear as support for their September dates, before headlining internationally. The melodically tantalising first single on the label, “Swim and Sleep (Like a Shark)”, is a taste of the new album, expected for release in early 2013.
