Alma is a London-based ambient group formed in 2014, fronted by songwriter Pete Lambrou. 'Alma' is a mini-album release by Alma which tears trembling blue stars down from the skies and gives them a great big sonic hug. Indeed, with their slow-moving soundscapes and experimental-as-anything overtures you could say that Alma are putting the 'fun' into funereal. Alma have been hoovering up comparisons to fellow fragrant explorers Sigur Ros, Patrick Watson and Explosions In The Sky. All of which is perhaps unsurprising when one considers that as mainstay of Codes In The Clouds and Monsters Build Mean Robots Lambrou's gently cosmic post-rock provenance is impeccable. Joined by fellow Code In The Clouder Ciaran Morahan, Alma deploy a loop station, multiple delay pedals, a piano and strings to create a slow-moving, high-flying soundscape of luscious gravitas.
