Providence, Rhode Island’s Zumo Kollie is officially on the radar. He popped off last May thanks to his excellent You’re a Good Sport Zumo Kollie EP, but made waves for me after I caught his opening set in support of The Movielife’s reunion show in Philly last month.
Kollie took the stage in front of a pop-punk friendly crowd and completely tore it down. His anthems of angst and frustration won over the fickle crowd one person at a time without compromising a second of creativity. The EP is drenched in undeniable cool, but is back lit by a political and social consciousness that’s hard to ignore. Check out his work here and keep up social media style @zumokollie on both IG and twitter. Happy Tuesday kids.
