Yumi Zouma – “Alena”

Alena-Single-Artwork-575x575

Yumi Zouma began as a project in 2013 between three friends from New Zealand. The songs were never intended to leave the machines they were composed on. In January 2014, their debut EP launched to overwhelming acclaim – lauded as undeniably stylish and sincere. The months that followed saw the band repeatedly climb to #1 on the Hype Machine, collaborate with musical role models, Air France, and support both Lorde and Chet Faker on key international tours.

Yumi Zouma now returns with their anticipated second EP, bookending their era of intimate and restrained short-form releases. The new tracks are just as effortless and engaging as expected, but they also tell the story of a band evolving. Lush, electronic productions buoy key tracks and the vocal deliveries are increasingly sophisticated.
