Yumi Zouma Unleash New Single/Video "KPR"

New Zealand-based indie pop band Yumi Zouma have unleashed their new single “KPR“, alongside an accompanying video.

The song is out now and follows on from last year’s album ‘Present Tense‘, and is the first taste of an upcoming EP (TBA). Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about the EP, they say: “Our fourth EP, is a fuller, more natural-sounding collection of recordings crammed full of cascading piano lines, pummelling drums, chorused gang vocal takes, and waves of distorted guitars. Particularly inspired by the sounds of ’90s noise, shoegaze, and midwestern emo, these new songs push the band’s signature dream pop sheen to new extremes, exemplified by the bursts of screeching feedback and spoken word on lead single ‘KPR,’ and the overdriven screams in the bridge of the anthemic ‘be okay.’ There are even surprises during the record’s more classic Yumi Zouma moments, such as the naked, intimate vocals in the coda to ‘Kicking Up Daisies,’ and Olivia’s joyous shout of ‘whoo!’ before the piano-led second verse of the alt-folk-leaning ‘Desert Mile.’”

The video was shot by Jack Shepherd. Watch below:
