YUZIMA pulls the receipts of sloppy politicians on new Prince-inspired single “MESSY”
YUZIMA did a spontaneous Facebook live stream, from his Alphabet City apt (featuring his cat Aero), on his new single “MESSY,” yesterday. He spoke about the meaning and creative process behind the new single, fighting the current corruption in the White House, and had fun with fans. You can watch it here.
There are plenty of what many would describe as sloppy politicians. But, New York City’s own “Prince of Noise,” YUZIMA takes aim at one in particular on his new Prince-inspired power ballad single “Messy.” He even goes so far as to sing “You’re like a pile of sh*t in the middle of the room” in the many-voiced melodic chorus. Yuzima doesn’t mention any names but makes it apparent who it is. He also refers to corrupt juries, police misconduct, and bloodied faces. Yuzima say’s the power of the chorus was “partially inspired” by Prince’s “Little Red Corvette” (his favorite) and even “Purple Rain”—with the lighters-up aspect of the song. Yuzima will be releasing the full album later this year.
