Yumi Zouma (NZ)
Yumi Zouma are close friends from New Zealand, who now live in between New York, New Zealand, and Paris. Their debut EP for Cascine (released February 11th) is a work of organic dream pop, pulsing with simple melodies and whispered intimacies. ‘The Brae’ is the first taste from that EP, a honeyed gem with a sun-kissed aura of enchantment. Soft, off-kilter melodies belie rich songcraft with deep emotional resonance, and gorgeously-framed sentiment, drawing the listener into its gilded world. Stylish, effortless and intuitive, Yumi Zouma’s EP holds a wealth of minor-key fantasies that will equally delight fans of both Sarah Records and recent collaborators Air France with its enigmatic qualities.
