The New Zealand band Yumi Zouma make synthpop, but you can’t really call them ’80s revivalists. Instead, the band turn the subgenre into hazy swoon-music. It subtly percolates in the background rather than grabbing your attention, and its songs play out as long, contented sighs. The band’s full-length debut Yoncalla is imminent, and we’ve posted the early songs “Keep It Close To Me,” “Barricade (Matter Of Fact),” and “Short Truth.” And now, you can stream the whole LP below.
Yoncalla is out 5/27 on Cascine.
