SINGLE REVIEW: Yumi Zouma – Cool For A Second

With their third studio album ‘Truth Of Consequences’ slated for a March 13 release, Yumi Zouma are ready to captivate you with their dreamy alt-pop aesthetic all over again. 

‘Cool For A Second’ is the New Zealand four-piece’s brand new single as well as the official second taste of what this new record holds for listeners. The dreamy indie-pop moment follows the light airiness that the hook of ‘Right Track / Wrong Man’ captured and exudes more atmospheric pop for your daily playlists. 

With dark lyrical undertones, this track is about personal growth and about stepping into the light and realising the power you do have. 

“Omissions never flare, they go out if you let them. Changing every year, I was cool for a second” lead vocalist Christie Simpson sings over a pulsating and chilled out pop delivery during the catchy chorus. 

The production is reminiscent of MUNA with it’s dreamy sonic and pulsating energy that isn’t over-powering, but instead holds a genuine warm heart. It’s a great song to introduce new listeners to while heading into a new album cycle and will hopefully create some new special moments in their live show.
