Ovum is a four piece instrumental post rock band hailing from Tokyo, Japan. The band was formed in 2006 by Norikazu Chiba (guitar, keyboard), Yosuke Jinnouchi (guitar), Shunsuke Onoyama (bass) and Yu Tokuda (drums) and has been playing since.
They describe their music as “the pursuit of universal beauty such as the sweetest of melodies and harmony, which may sound classical”. On May 2007 they released their first EP entitled Under the Lost on Lost Records which featured only four songs and on April 2008 they released their first full length entitled Microcosmos on XTAL Records.
This EP already released on January 27, 2010. With total 36 minutes long holding 4 tracks. Their music may be based on the form of “post rock”. However, they believe the most important is not in musical form but in the pursuit of universal beauty such as the sweetest of melodies and harmony, which may sound classical.
