Yuzima Attacks Mass Confusion on Kurt Cobain-Influenced New Single 'Anarchy'
On new single and May's selection from "Nine Months of The Machine", "Anarchy", Yuzima brings the titles provocative implication to fruition. Out today, the new single has a mega chorus of shouting voices (all Yuzima's) chanting, "If you don't stand for something you get nothing". With blazing metal guitars and distorted drums, the song was one of the first recorded for Yuzima's latest LP "THE MACHINE", inspired by what Yuzima saw as poser revolutionaries and armchair anarchist
- "People who complain but generally don't contribute anything productive" say's Yuzima, he continues, "that anti-everything thing that you get from some folks". He also cites Kurt Cobain as a major influence on the song "I wanted to inject a little of that early 90's raw sound into the album and they're the kings of it," says Yuzima. Yuzima fulfilled this goal by recording the song himself in his Greenwich Village living room studio. An earlier version of the song was leaked before the albums release and received a deluge of props from critics like "bad-ass", "fucking flawless" and "raucous" on tastemaker blogs like Afropunk, Gayletter and Jungle Indie Rock.
Yuzima is a swiftly rising singer-songwriter who has been called "rising indie luminary" and "great artist" by blogs like Louder than War and Under the Radar.
The single can be streamed and downloaded for free now on Soundcloud while the video is also available on Youtube. "THE MACHINE" is available on Itunes.
