Track: Keep It Close To Me | Artist: Yumi Zouma
Four-piece ensemble Yumi Zouma recently dropped the initial single from their debut album Yoncalla, set for release on May 27th. Keep It Close To Me is certainly a "one-of-a-kind" track with a beautifully distinct and calming ethos.
Following years of collaborating remotely from their respective home cities, Yumi Zouma recently gathered in-person to produce "an album about being close to people rather than miles apart." Though there's still a little over a month left to wait for Yoncalla's release date, listeners can enjoy a sample of what's to come in Keep It Close To Me. Skillfully written and produced, the tune encompasses the ensemble's innate ability to create powerful music through their sensitive yet potent synth textures, sweet-sounding vocals, warm melodic motifs, and smooth low end frequencies.
"This was the first time we weren’t limited or protected by distance. With Yoncalla, the process was different, and it can be scary to present raw ideas to your friends ‐ but it’s also incredible to see songs evolve through the sparks of inspiration that bounce between people in the same room."
