Yumi Zouma Announce New LP 'Willowbank', Stream "December"

New Zealand-based indie pop band Yumi Zouma have announced they will release their sophomore album 'Willowbank' on October 6th through Cascine Records.

The follow-up to last year's Yoncalla, was recorded entirely in the group’s home country of New Zealand. Specifically, Yumi Zouma holed up in a studio “in Christchurch’s semi-demolished CBD, on one of the few remaining blocks that still characterizes the city from before it was destroyed by a series of earthquakes.”

“It was as though there was a brief pause in all of our lives and we finally felt like a band from New Zealand,” said guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Josh Burgess . “We were on home turf and creating from a place that felt fundamentally natural.”

When you know it’s there, the feeling of rootedness is undeniable on Willowbank. Being connected to their origins on the bottom of the earth allowed the band’s members to craft another essential chapter in the Yumi Zouma storybook.

Pre-order the record here, check out the tracklist and stream their new single "December" below:

Willowbank Tracklist:
01. Depths (Pt. I)

The song is taken from her upcoming new album 'Change', set to arrive in November via Kill Rock Stars. Pre-order via Pledge music.

recorded with Athens musicians Ryan Monahan, Lemuel Hayes, Suny Lyons, and Marie Davon, Change marks an important milestone for Cindy Wilson: her first solo effort during a 40-year career with the legendary B-52s!

With echoes of Air, Bjork, Tame Impala, and Gary Numan, the band refers to its infectious brand of new-wave electro-pop as “Turbo Chill”. Rather than shouting in a “rock voice,” on Change Wilson gets to experiment with more emotional, subtle vocalizations, crooning, and whispering over swirls of subtle psychedelia, Quincy Jones-era strings, and pulsing synths.

The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their just released new album 'Reborn'. Buy it here.

About the track Kyle Mendes says: "Godless City” is a song about finding your place in the world and making a name for yourself. Sometimes, the very people you congregate with might pretend or act like they know/care about you, but never actually take the steps to find out more. In turn, they really know nothing about you. I feel a lot of people can relate to the meaning, as attempting to make a name for yourself in your own hometown can be very eye-opening. The video has layers of iconic sites in Dallas at night that fit perfectly for this song."
