Uboa is the musical project of the Australian drone, ambient and noise rock artist Xandra Metcalfe. Uboa began in 2010 during a period when Metcalfe experimented with doom metal textures and home studio equipment, and gradually moved towards noise, experimental and abstract compositions.
Uboa's debut album Sometimes Light was released in 2010, followed by Jouissance in 2013 and The Sky May Be in 2018. Her 2019 follow up album, The Origin of My Depression has been critically acclaimed.
Xandra has collaborated as Uboa with several other Noise artists including Slumber Kitty, Muddy Lawrence, Solus Varak and has produced a split EP with Bolt Gun. Jenny Hval, Planning for Burial, the English producer and composer Geoff Barrow, and producer Ben Salisbury's collaborative score for the 2018 film Annihilation have been cited as influences.
