Originally formed in New Zealand, the members of ​Yumi Zouma​ are a creative force who now come together from around the globe. Currently based in New York City (Josh Burgess - guitar, vocals), London (Charlie Ryder - guitar, bass, keys), and Christchurch, New Zealand (Christie Simpson - vocals, keys), the band is thrilled to announce they’ve found a common home with Polyvinyl Record Co​.

Alongside today’s signing announcement, the band has released new single “​Right Track / Wrong Man​” which was produced by the band and mixed by Jake Aron (Solange, Grizzly Bear, Snail Mail). Bouncy, disco-infused beats elevate the band’s signature indie pop melodies on the song which meditates on the closure gained by accepting that it’s time to move on. ​“‘Right Track / Wrong Man’ comes from a place of uncertainty – of not knowing if you should stay in the comfort of a slightly unfulfilling relationship, or branch out and make the most of the youth you have left; meet new people, go out more, dance, live,” explains F​ rontwoman Christie Simpson.
