Go. Buy. Now.
Silky smooth Yumi Zouma is back even before we’ve had time to catch our breath with a new pre-order. I can’t wait. Gimme.
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER - ď»żorders will ship week of September 18, 2017.
Just over a year after releasing their lauded debut LP, Yoncalla, Yumi Zouma return with Willowbank, the bandâ€™s sophomore album.
Limited edition Willowbank 12"s are pressed on baby blue vinyl and include sheet music for album highlight 'Carnationâ€™ printed on premium cotton paper. Select limited edition LPs will also include hidden entry tickets to invite-only release parties in New York City and Los Angeles, featuring live and DJ sets from the band.
For the making of Willowbank, Yumi Zouma's members â€” Charlie Ryder, Josh Burgess, Christie Simpson and Sam Perry â€” settled on a plan to reunite for the New Zealand summer. To complete what would become their first significant work written and recorded entirely in their home country, they rented a studio in Christchurchâ€™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. â€śIt was as though there was a brief pause in all of our lives and we finally felt like a band from New Zealand,â€ť said Burgess. â€śWe were on home turf and creating from a place that felt fundamentally natural.â€ť When you know itâ€™s there, the feeling of rootedness is undeniable on Willowbank. Being connected to their origins on the bottom of the earth allowed the bandâ€™s members to craft another essential chapter in the Yumi Zouma storybook.
