Artist: Yumi Zouma

After leaking track after track over the past few weeks, New Zealand dream-pop newcomers Yumi Zouma finally put the last song off their self-titled debut EP on Soundcloud before it’s official release via Cascine next week. The four tracks are reminiscent of long past summer vacations and soft-rendered French movies from the 80ies – sweet, innocently sexy and melancholic at the same time. If someone ever remade La Boum, this would be it’s soundtrack – and they know it, putting a young Sophie Marceau lookalike on the cover. The blogosphere is already in alert mode over the trio (consisting of Charlie Ryder, Josh Burgess, and Kim Pflaum), and rightly so. It is one of the most compelling EPs of this young year. Listen to “Riquelme”, the last shared track and my personal highlight off the EP, below, or to the whole EP streaming over at SPIN.
