New Zealand indie-pop band Yumi Zouma are releasing a new album, Willowbank, on October 6 via Cascine. Now the band have shared a video for a new song, "Half Hour." The simple black & white clip was self-directed by the band and features close-ups and pulled back shots of the band's members against a white wall, looking cool. The song is a bit of a slower burn than their usual upbeat pop singles. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

The band's Josh Burgess had this to say about the song in a press release: "The first time I experienced death in any significant way was when I was 7. My granddad died, and I still remember this feeling knowing that no he was no longer on the planet, and no matter how hard I searched, he could not be found - he ceased to exist. I worried that he needed someone to help him as he navigated his way into death. The line 'I think I'll need you when I die, when I've got no one on my side' is one that I wrote a while ago, which for me, captures my biggest fear about dying. An intensely visceral experience with no assistance."

Previously they shared the Willowbank's first single, the truly wonderful pop song "December," which was one of our favorite Songs of the Week, as well as the album opener "Depths (Pt. I)" (the album ends with "Depths (Pt. II)"), which was also one of our Songs of the Week, and "Persephone," which was again a Song of the Week.
