Yumi and the Weather “Hustle”

Brighton (UK) based neo-synth pop rush ‘n’ noir four piece, Yumi and the Weather arrive fashionably late to 2018, with new single and uber cool slice of synth-sonic-speed-racer, “Hustle”.

Taken from their forthcoming, self-titled LP (release date: Sept. 14), the 3 minute 46 second track, drops on a dash; Ruby Taylor’s stylish vocal delivery, catches the ear from the get go; a hush ‘n’ run, cry from the technoir dark city, further enhanced by deft use of harmonies, blended lush on the reverb.

Tonight’s the night, tight drums, snare gated, punch drive in high transient spikes; metronomic sequence, lead, wave and pad, simmer, sear, scorch and scold; guitar and bass, fused analog/digital hybrid, hot wired intrinsic to the expansive, cinematic sound design.

Sound FX merge with the musical, vocal moments float, adrift in the sonic-space-infinite; building in pulsating layers of well produced, arrangement, “Hustle” rises on the low down; synth-tronic-solo, cast monumental against the breaking sun, ‘I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe.’; ear-caught vocals, blade-run-down to absence, drums deceased and synths resistored, sequencer stops, lost, ‘..like tears in the rain. Time to die.’

Yumi and the Weather’s debut LP is available to pre-order now, as both digital download and on limited edition 12″ orange vinyl, on Bandcamp!
