If you’re starting back school this week like I am, I want to wish you all the luck in the world. If you’re feeling a bit anxious today fear not, for I’ve found something that can ease your nerves. New Zealand band Yumi Zouma had one song drift around on blogs last year and now they’ve got their debut self-titled release on the horizon. The members are betwixt New York and Paris now, but regardless it seems like New Zealand is really starting to turn up music-wise. Maybe we’ll soon view New Zealand as a vital source for indie music like we seem to view Canada now! “The Brae,” the only song available for preview from this release, has soft indie rock with a twist of pop that can really place the listener on a beach with its gleaming timbres and relaxed notes. For a little bit of clarification, the first 100 pre-orders are limited to that silkscreen sleeve and as far as I know you can still get one. Check out “The Brae” below via the Soundcloud player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
