SONG PICK: Yumi And The Weather – Howl

Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ruby Taylor makes music in Brighton, England under the name Yumi And The Weather. Her latest song, “Howl,” is an energetic, loud indie rock track that goes all in from the first second on.

Ruby gives us some details about the song:

” ‘Howl’ is about our natural body hair. Writing this song was an opportunity to reflect on how something so natural can create so many insecurities, while also giving us the power to control it to suit our needs and desires. Growing up, I was occasionally teased and made to feel insecure about my body hair – by both men and women. It created this urge to get rid of every hair in sight in order to feel confident, but it now feels like we live in a time where it’s accepted however we choose to have it. It’s nice, and means it’s not such a big deal to me anymore if I don’t get rid of my moustache as soon as it appears. Ultimately, ‘Howl’ is a celebration of our hair and our care routines.”
