New Zealand indie-pop band Yumi Zouma released their sophomore album, Willowbank, last year via Cascine (it was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017) and are releasing a new EP, EP III, this Friday via Cascine. Now you can stream the whole EP. Listen to it below, via Billboard, who premiered the stream. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Previously they shared its first single, “In Camera,” which was our #2 Song of the Week. Then they shared another song from it, the wonderfully titled “Crush (It’s Late, Just Stay),” which was also one of our Songs of the Week.

As its title suggests, EP III is the third and final part of a trilogy of EPs that started in 2014. The band issued this previous press release statement about the EP: “There is something really special about the EP format. It’s been so long since we worked on one that we all had forgotten how fun and liberating they can be. This EP, both in its material and how it was written and recorded, feels really close to EP I and II. Spread again between three countries, bouncing endless revisions of a song until it’s right, falling asleep on FaceTime trying to write lyrics together and the exhilaration of waking up to NEW SONG VERSION 5 - it threw us back to how we worked on material when we thought no one would ever listen. We’ve completed our EP family. It’s the little sibling none of us had growing up and none of us knew we could love so much.”

Back in April the band shared another new song, “France (Grand Boulevards),” from Dreams, a compilation that’s been put together by the New York-based website Stadium & Shrines that came out in June via Cascine.
