Listen To Voom's New Single 'Everyone'

Amongst the many unlikely plot twists served up by 2024 so far, this year has turned out to be an excellent time to be a fan of Aotearoa indie-pop legends Voom, fronted by Buzz Moller. AudioCulture dates the origins of Voom back to 1982 (!), and they've given us just two perfectly formed long players since then, attracting devotees and collaborators including Vera Ellen, Fazerdaze and Freak The Sheep host Taylor MacGregor, whose love for the group is so fanatical he has "Voom" tattooed upon his bod. All of which is a roundabout way of saying, three single releases from Voom within the past six months is very special indeed.

Embarking on a triple headline nationwide tour with Taite Music Prize winners Vera Ellen and Reb Fountain from 30th May onwards, Voom's all-inclusive new single 'Everyone' via Flying Nun Records is a heart-bursting ontological celebration of macrocosmic interconnectedness...

"I wrote this song after a dream about the Big Bang. I saw the whole universe exploding from a singularity in slow motion and all the particles were crying “Noooo!” with their hands out towards each other as they got torn apart. I woke up and realised every atom in the universe loves every other atom and wants to get back together. If you leave two rocks floating in space they will start moving towards each other. Humans are just complex versions of this and everyone has the same unquenched longing built in from birth till death. You never get rid of it. You might reduce it with love or spiritual connection so it doesn’t feel like you’re apart from everything else but it’s there until the universe runs its course and collapses together again. On the bright side that’s also the reason we exist and the driving force of all life. Of course it was only a dream." — Buzz Moller
