The Austin 100: Yumi Zouma
Hometown: Christchurch, New Zealand
Why We're Excited: The dream-pop band Yumi Zouma formed in Christchurch, New Zealand, only to spread its members all over the world — not only Christchurch and Wellington, but also London and New York. That sense of feeling stretched thin and far from home informs the group's songwriting, but Yumi Zouma's chemistry remains undeniable: "Cool for a Second" perfectly evokes the soft melancholy of doomed romance, even as it floats along like a dandelion spore on a spring breeze.
