New Zealand indie-pop band Yumi Zouma released their sophomore album, Willowbank, a few weeks back via Cascine. Now they have shared a video for the album’s first single, the truly wonderful pop song “December.” The video was filmed in and around Yumi Zouma’s hometown of Christchurch, New Zealand and features singer Christie Simpson wandering around the city, sometimes singing the song. Watch it below, followed by a list of locations the video was filmed at. Also below are their upcoming tour dates.

Previously Yumi Zouma shared 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. Then there was a simple black & white video for “Half Hour” (which also was one of our Songs of the Week). Willowbank was our joint Album of the Week. They also traded remixes with Chad Valley, who remixed “December.”
