Release Date:05/27/2016;Notes:Vinyl LP pressing. Since the release of their debut EP in 2014, Yumi Zouma's evolution has been brisk and organic - a shoreline reflecting the changing tides of it's ocean. The band sold -out their first EP twice -over before it's release and before having ever played live, but each member's disparate living arrangements meant that live shows or even further releases were unexpected. Having grown up together in Christchurch, New Zealand, they scattered after school, moving to Auckland, Paris and New York, collaborating over email to create Yumi Zouma's initial material. However, the intense reception to these early tracks resulted in the group's first practices taking place on arena stages, as they were asked on tour by both Chet Faker and Lorde. That intimacy is apparent on Yoncalla - an album about being close to people, rather than miles apart. Yumi Zouma'seffortless waves of harmony have been redefined and the creative process laid bare to expose an act more unguarded and interconnected than ever before. To capture that concept, New Zealand visual artist Henrietta Harris was tapped to create the artwork, illustrating the band together on a front cover for the first time. Each member's portrait is hand- drawn, but without the individual characteristics that previously separated them.;Track List:1. Barricade (Matter of Fact);2. Text from Sweden;3. Keep It Close to Me;4. Haji Awali;5. Remember You at All;6. Yesterday;7. Better When I'm By Your Side;8. Short Trush;9. Hemisphere;10. Drachma
