During these cold, polar vortex-y times, there’s no better feeling than listening to some chill music to take the edge off while you warm up in front of a nice warm fire. Yumi Zouma’s (Charlie Ryder, Josh Burgess, and Kim Pflaum), new self-titled EP is the perfect soundtrack to this winter wonderland from start to finish. The EP’s first track, “A Long Walk Home For Parted Lovers,” is a throwback to the late 80’s with soft keys and faded synths. Next up is “Salka Gets Her Hopes Up,” another throwback track, but this time the New Zealand-based band shows their love for disco. “The Brae” has a darker feel than the Kiwi’s former tracks, whistful lyrics sighing, “I don’t believe you an me…it’s suddenly gone the wrong direction, turn. Don’t get burnt, you’re my girl, I need the deep affection too…” Lastly, Yumi Zouma wows with “Riquelme,” a reverb-heavy track that showcases the trio’s silky harmonies and superb instrumentals. Let’s hope we get more from them soon!
