#3 Yumi Zouma – Yumi Zouma
Unquestionably our most played EP of the year; Yumi Zouma’s eponymous debut is so dreamy and delightful that if it were a person, you’d be swooning over it. We just adore their blissful, laidback summery sounds that just drift and float like clouds on a tranquil August day.
It is music that evokes imagery of summer and inspires an inner peace and calmness. It’s an idyllic and heavenly break in glorious but not overwhelming sunshine. These four tracks are like swimming to the edge of an infinity pool and gazing out at the breathtaking vista of melody before you. There’s not another soul for miles but for your loved one resting beside you, pina colada in hand, drinking in the scenery and delightful sounds of muted beats, gentle breeze like vocals and delicate, refreshing vocals.
It is utterly gorgeous and we cannot help but get caught in its enthral.
