Get up and dance to Yumi Zouma’s “Crush (It’s Late, Just Stay)”
Hear the disco-tinged song now.
New Zealand indie pop group Yumi Zouma has been gearing up for the release of EP III, the final installment of their ongoing EP trilogy, due out September 28 on Cascine. Today, the four-piece shares the latest single from that project, the sweetly-titled "Crush (It's Late, Just Stay)." But the title and the upbeat disco that lights up the track belies the more crushing realization that vocalists Christie Simpson and Josh Burgess are trading verses trying to convince the other to stay, but are somehow unable to get on the same page. I would be more sad at how realistic it all plays out if it weren't for the glowy guitar licks and the shuffling beat that makes me wanna dance.
Burgess, explaining how the song came together and eulogizing a now-lost New York recording studio, writes via email:
