Yumi Zouma’s Kim Pflaum, aka Madeira, has released a new track “Let Me Down” and better yet, you can download it for free. The track was featured on Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Song series, available on Soundcloud.
According to Kim Pflaum’s website, Madeira is a “new project” that debuted in May 2015. Unlike her involvement with the dream pop trio Yumi Zouma, the guise apparently allows for “more creative freedom and room to experiment in the alt. pop field.” Not unintentionally, her new song delivers just that.
In “Let Me Down,” Pflaum’s disarming, airy voice hangs onto a shade of dream pop haze but the buoyant, detectable beat lends an exuberance often lacking in dreamy flow together melodies. Synth beat interludes create an eighties pop ambiance that will leave listeners humming the tune all day.
