MADEIRA’s debut EP, Bad Humors, is streaming in it’s entirety a few days early. Head over to Stereogum to hear some light-as-air vibes: “Bad Humors, the EP Pflaum recorded after leaving Yumi Zouma and moving to Auckland, presents its own distinct brand of ’80s-indebted electronic pop, one that marks MADEIRA as a project worthy of your immediate attention.”
Only a little over week left to pre-order the release on the Carpark shop and iTunes. Bad Humors out September 23rd.

“This video questions the fine lines between different forms of manipulation, it asks ‘how far is too far?’ I wanted the viewer to feel more and more uncomfortable as the video progressed, to challenge rather than pass judgement on what’s right or wrong.” — Kim Pflaum (the voice behind MADEIRA)
Head over to Noisey and see the newest music video from MADEIRA for her track “Manipulator.” The song is taken from her forthcoming EP, Bad Humors, out September 23rd. Pre-orders are available now on the Carpark shop and iTunes.

“Though the phrase typically refers to an invitation of romantic interest, this song questions the vulnerabilities of intimacy and whether it’s worth the anguish.”

We are very pleased to welcome MADEIRA to Carpark family! After touring the world with Yumi Zouma, the group she co-founded, Kim Pflaum left the band and moved to the seaside city of Auckland, New Zealand. The transition gave her plenty to write about. Pflaum started writing songs as MADEIRA, a solo project that began years earlier. Her new 5-track EP, Bad Humors, is out September 23rd. Stream the first single, “Manipulator,” via The Fader.
Pre-order the EP today on the Carpark shop or iTunes and receive an instant download of “Manipulator.” The LP version will be available as a limited pressing on violet vinyl.
The EP’s title comes from the ancient medical practice of bloodletting, which was a method of draining blood with the intent that bad feelings, emotions, “humors,” would also leave the body. Pflaum noticed this procedure mirrored the process of making the MADEIRA songs. “I created these songs to make sense of the painful experiences they deal with,” Pflaum says. “By completing and releasing the songs, I feel I am somewhat ridding myself of what has been
ailing me, letting go.”
