Yumi Zouma has shared a video for their brand new single “Where The Light Used To Lay,” off their forthcoming release Present Tense. The track arrives alongside a trilogy of videos directed by filmmaker Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell, Listen up Philip), Present Tense drops on Friday, March 18, 2022 via Polyvinyl.

“‘Where The Light Used To Lay’ eventually revealed itself as a bittersweet song about the agony of detangling your life as you break up and the enticing future, clarity, and lightness that the end of the tunnel can offer,” says co-founder/multi-instrumentalist Josh Burgess. “When we first started writing the song in 2019, we were all in long-term relationships. By the time the final mix was completed in the Fall of 2021, only one of those remained (thanks COVID). It’s funny how songs can end up revealing themselves in surprising ways, even to their writers. It’s equal parts confronting and calming, knowing that the subconscious starts processing long before the conscious comes to it. Regardless, it’s nice to have a moment with a song where you go ‘damn, ain’t that the truth.’

Yumi Zouma start their North American run beginning April 7 at Atlanta, GA’s Terminal West and then continuing through early May. Special guests include NoSo (April 7-15), JORDANN (April 16-17), Mini Trees (April 18-25), Noble Oak (April 28), and Beauty Queen (April 29-May 6).
