Originally hailing from Ōtautahi, Yumi Zouma have lifted the veil on their fourth studio long player. Praised by international tastemakers Stereogum as their album of the week, Present Tense is the product of remote and in-studio sessions in Wellington, Florence, New York, Los Angeles, and London, folding fresh instrumental strategies into the globetrotting group's featherlight dream-pop universe, while citing the influence of Bruce Springsteen and Phoebe Bridgers. Exploring distorted shoegazey textures on 'Razorblade' and pop-rock pep on earlier single 'In the Eyes of Our Love', the new record blends an upbeat feeling for adventure borne out of necessity with a resilient, reflective spirit — dedicated "to 2020, and the memory of all that was lost".

'Present Tense' is out now on major streaming services via Polyvinyl.
