Piling on subjects from Native American genocide, gun violence to police brutality – YUZIMA uses the tools of punk rock; mixing it with forward leaning experimentalism, R&B and even trap – focusing his emotional tumult to reflect the world.
YUZIMA has been described as if Prince collaborated with Ty Segall and Bad Brains in a chamber of lo-fi genius. “Living Off The Land” has been called a “masterpiece” and a “politically charged soundtrack to surviving [a] new age”. The release is available now on Bandcamp, and can be streamed on Soundcloud.
