Tik Tu is an indiepop band formed in 2014 from the ashes of the project Echo Gardens, a trip hop band that released two albums and toured Ukraine and Eastern Europe for two years. Comprised of the same musicians – Roman Boshko (bass), Nataly Bagriy (flute, keyboards) and Lesik Drachuk (guitar) – Tik Tu creates an entirely different genre of music and utilizes additional instruments. They bring an eclectic mix of electronic and live sound, using samplers, flute, violin, drums and guitars during live performances. Nataly give a delicate vocal performance with lyrics in English, Ukrainian and Lithuanian.
The UmmagmaRemix features as the B-side. Known for their ethereal compositions and for tastefully blending multiple genres, Ummagma are also known for their work with such notable musicians as Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), Malcolm Holmes (OMD), Graham Bonnar (Swervedriver, Brian Jonestown Massacre), and Fran Ashcroft (Damon Albarn, Lords of Acid), among others. In 2014, their collaborative LP ‘New Born’ with Moscow’s Sounds of Sputnik held in America’s CMJ college radio charts for 7 weeks – longer than any other release from the former Soviet Union. It also earned Sounds of Sputnik a Jagermeister Indie Award. In 2015, Ummagma released their ‘Frequency’ EP, which was included in over 30 blog ‘Best of 2015’ lists.
