YUMI ZOUMA EP II

Yumi Zouma follow up their stellar debut EP and an all-around breakout year in 2014 with their new EP II 10", out March 10 on Cascine. We've already heard the dreamy, bittersweet dance-floor catharsis of "Alena", and today the band unveils the Allie Avital Tsypin-directed video for new single "Catastrophe," yet another sweetly infectious jam that captures the kind of wistful, life-affirming yearning the Yumis do so well...

premiere: Yumi Zouma – Alena

YUMI ZOUMA // ALENA

Yumi Zouma came out of nowhere early this year with an EP of softly shimmering, twilit dream-disco that was so pitch-perfect (right down to the cover art; some might even suggest it was 'custom-built' for us) that it almost felt like it was destined to be a fluke, a debut that was surely the result of some kind of serendipitous long-distance magic that a young group has trouble ever recapturing. We are psyched to report, however, that this is not the case: the band's gorgeous, sentimental new single "Alena" is the most disco thing the Yumis have ever done, and by the time singer Kim Pflaum hits that swooning, bittersweet refrain -- "Come over here and dance with me / it’s true that you will never see me feel better" -- it also feels like their shining/defining pop moment. Yumi Zouma's Alena single is out today on Cascine.

YZ goes on tour later this month with their fellow New Zealander Lorde, followed by an appearance at Iceland Airwaves + a few U.S. shows in November. Check all of their dates after the jump...
