Barricade (Matter Of Fact) got unveiled last week and it's another great track from Yumi Zouma in advance of their debut album Yoncalla.
Barricade started life as a collaborative jam session - a first for the band at the time. The end result is apparently a long way from those initial moments of lofi freeform collaboration, when band members Josh and Charlie sat in Charlie's apartment with an unplugged bass and guitar respectively, Christie humming out melodies. Whilst Barricade is much more polished than its origins would suggest, that collaborative approach enabled the band to be more collaborative and distil the best bits into the track you hear now. The result is stunning as always - I can't wait to get my ears around the album.
