Yumi Zouma are still in a league of their own on Willowbank, given how there’s no other artist right now who's as good in merging simple dance floor pleasures with a dreamlike undercurrent. They can certainly benefit from that, though at times it’s as if the band is still trying to figure out the right temperament to base off of for the extent of a full-length album. This album lowkey blew me away. It was the first project I had heard by Yumi Zouma and I love the production so much. It's chill, it's nocturnal, but most of all it works so well with the writing. The songwriting hooked me from the first track and I was sucked in for the rest of the album. I am officially a new fan. As for flaws, some songs drag on a little longer than they need to be. Other than that, I adore this album. 1y. pbj. 90. Yumi Zouma creates perfect pop music.

After they got off the road in support of their debut album, Yoncalla, the New Zealand quartet Yumi Zouma headed home to recuperate and start work on another album. The home cooking and familiar spaces led the band to make something much more intimate and 2017's Willowbank is less of a record for sunny day frolics and more of one for a cuddle and a restorative stroll through dusky streets. With songs that never work up a sweat and melodies that caress jangled nerves, the band has crafted chillout music of the best kind.
