Yumi Zouma Announce Debut Album 'Yoncalla', Air "Keep It Close To Me"

New Zealand-based indie pop band Yumi Zouma have announced they will release their debut full-length album 'Yoncalla' on May 27 via Cascine. 

Continue their tradition of creating collectable vinyl releases, the new album includes a limited grey 7” that will have two studio outtakes from the recording sessions. The 7” will be bundled with the first 500 copies of the Yoncalla 12”.

The band have also aired the album's lead single "Keep It Close To Me"

About the record, YZ guitarist Charlie Ryder said: "Yumi Zouma has always been an exercise in refining ideas and collaborating, but this was the first time we weren’t limited or protected by distance. With Yoncalla, the process was different, and it can be scary to present raw ideas to your friends ‐ but it’s also incredible to see songs evolve through the sparks of inspiration that bounce between people in the same room."
