"Rising Indie Luminary" - YUZIMA gets major plug from UK music blog
YUZIMA's upcoming project Sound Opera - Project One is preparing to be released on March 13th. But before that, music writers get to chime in and let us know what they think. AND IT'S AMAZING. The first review came out on british punk blog Louder Than War yesterday, written by the fantastic Dan Lucas and had all great things to say. Here are just some of the quotes.
"Rising Indie Luminary"
"Unlikely champion of European industrial rock, straight out of The Bronx"
"Layers of keyboards, descending on the listener like a grey industrial fog"
NYC rocker Yuzima Philip grew up on MTV watching childhood heros like Axl Rose and Bono. The rockers sharply contrasted the music many of his friends listened to and the singers his mother played on her stereo in their Gun Hill Projects apartment in the Bronx. YUZIMA eventually followed those early influences to create dynamic wide range indie rock — balancing pop song structures with heavy doses of noise and industrial. Yuzima's sound was described by Dan Lucas in Under the Radar as "industrial Achtung Baby-esque rock and soulful vocals" while in the same feature he was called "rising indie luminary". With big themes from empowerment to love and conflict, YUZIMA uses his music as a bullhorn to shout out his ideas to the world.
