Even for those of us too cynical to give ourselves over to genres that contain the words “dream” or “synth,” Yumi Zouma is pretty damn charming. After leaving their native New Zealand in 2011, the geographically divided four-piece created music trans-continentally via email. In 2014 and 2015, a pair of short, sweet, and sultry EPs caught the attention of fellow New Zealander Lorde, who offered them a chance to tour with her. Touring with the teen sensation gave Yumi Zouma an opportunity to write a whole album together, in person, in the same time zone. Despite their young fanbase and affinity for 21st century production techniques, the band’s music is nostalgic. With a clear fondness for days of disco, Yumi Zouma makes contemporary dance music too pretty to be chopped and screwed. EMMA BURKE
