Yoncalla is Yumi Zouma's debut album. It follows two well-received EPs and countless days on the road.
At its essence, Yoncalla is about being close to people rather than miles apart. Whereas previous material was written in stages and shared between band members who live in distant corners of the world, Yoncalla is the product of the Yumis collaborating in close quarters. “Yumi Zouma has always been an exercise in refining ideas and working together,” reflects guitarist Charlie Ryder, “but this was the first time we weren’t limited, or protected, by distance. It can be scary presenting raw ideas to your friends, but it’s also incredible to see songs evolve through the sparks of inspiration that bounce between people in the same room.”
