Yumi Zouma makes their way to Kuala Lumpur.
Yumi Zouma began as project in 2013 between three friends from Christchurch, New Zealand. The songs were never meant to leave the equipment they were composed on, but following a casual exchange with the Cascine label, it was clear that the music was too good to be left on hard drives. The following six months were spent readying a humble four-track release.
In January 2014, their debut EP launched to overwhelming acclaim and the months that followed saw the band repeatedly climb to #1 on the Hype Machine, sell through two pressings of records and collaborate with longtime musical role models, Air France.
That spring, Yumi Zouma took their once-withdrawn project to sold-out theaters across Australia supporting Chet Faker, to club shows in North America and to festivals throughout Europe. The band was then tapped by Lorde to open for the star on her arena tour of New Zealand.
Now, Yumi Zouma returns with their much-anticipated second EP, bookending their era of intimate and restrained short-form releases. The band who are also touring internationally, will be making a stop in Kuala Lumpur for a one night only performance.
