After hearing EP II back in 2015, it was a pretty unanimous feeling among SlyVinyl writersÂ that there was just something extra amazing about Yumi Zouma.Â Their blend of 80s-leaning synth designs,Â easy breezy vocal treatments fromÂ Christie Simpson and cross-continentalÂ songwriting technique (Charlie Ryder in London, Josh Burgess in New York, and Christie SimpsonÂ & Olivia Campion in Christchurch) stood out among their peers in the dream pop landscape.Â After three fantasticÂ full-lengths including this sensationalÂ Oasis cover album, Yumi Zouma is ready to continue the EP series.
First single In Camera starts off right where the last one ended over 3 years ago, thick with atmospheric dance pop straight out of a John Hughes film.Â Just try and not love this f-ing song.Â Once you get your heart back into your chest, smash that ‘buy’ button and get yourself a 10″ slab on blue and white split vinyl.Â All preorders will include a hand-numbered autographed print from the band, while supplies last.
Cascine webstore pre-orders are pressed on limited edition white vinyl, and will also include an exclusive 10" print, hand-numbered and signed by Yumi Zouma.
Yumi Zouma returns with EP III, completing the trilogy they started with EPs I and II. This new collection finds the international act stronger than ever, sculpting effortless atmospheres, winsome hooks and stadium-ready finishes. EP III is out digitally on September 28th, and will be released as 10" vinyl on November 16th.
