Yumi Zouma have shared the final advance single from their upcoming album Present Tense, which is out this Friday, March 18. Following ‘Where the Light Used to Lay’, ‘In the Eyes of Our Love’, ‘Mona Lisa’, and ‘Give It Hell’, ‘Astral Projection’ comes with an accompanying visual that marks the final installment in a trilogy of music videos from director Alex Ross Perry. Watch and listen below.
“’When I let it come for me / I feel free’” – ‘Astral Projection’ is about leaning into bad feelings and the mixed results it brings,” vocalist/keyboardist Christie Simpson explained in a statement. “Learning to sit with the reality of a relationship not working out as you hoped. Looking towards the future and knowing there will be others, there will be better times, but sitting in the present moment, trying to make peace with that. ‘Hold me in your arms / I know this wouldn’t last / I know I shouldn’t feel safe, but I do.’”
