Yumi Zouma’s 2nd release

Christchurch via Paris/New York trio Yumi Zouma have been making a massive impact on the blogosphere since the release of their first single The Brae last week.

Named after a hill-bound street in the Garden City suburb of Mount Pleasant which overlooks the Pacific Ocean, the song is a wonderful, subdued track that captures the feel of the New Zealand summer.

Featuring former members of Christchurch group Sleepy Age, Yumi Zouma seem fully formed and ready to take on the world, and have already released a follow-up single – the bass-driven groove entitled Sålka Gets Her Hopes Up.

Look for their debut EP next month on US label Cascine.
