Yumi Zouma share video for glimmering love mantra “Southwark”
“Southwark” is taken from Yumi Zouma‘s new album Truth Or Consequences, due out March 13 via Polyvinyl.
New Zealand dream-pop band Yumi Zouma continue to tease their new album Truth Or Consequences, a project that will mark their debut on Polyvinyl. After “Right Track/Wrong Man” and “Cool For A Second,” they have now shared another exquisite single, “Southwark”. It’s a perfectly polished slice of glistening indie-pop, acting as a love mantra. About the track, singer Christie Simpson detailed:
[“Southwark”] feels like a dedication, a mantra, a promise to myself. I wrote the chorus line about the someone in particular that I was with at the time, but it now feels like a universal truth for my relationships, a dedication that goes to every person I’ve loved and those that I’m still loving now. I can be quite dramatic in love and relationships, and I don’t always do or say the right thing when I should, but I do throw myself in completely (for better or worse). I loved that idea of repeating that dedication — “I am imperfectly yours.” This track has haunted me a little every time I listen, there’s something melancholy that sits in there alongside that overall feeling of quiet elation. I suppose that speaks to the classic dichotomy of love and relationships — nothing is ever 100% good or perfect, and that’s what I am constantly trying to come to terms with.
