Yumi Zouma Share “In The Eyes Of Our Love”

New Zealand’s rising alternative pop band Yumi Zouma shared their latest single “In The Eyes Of Our Love,” previewing their upcoming album Present Tense.

Present Tense is Coming in March

Yumi Zouma is gearing up for the release of their upcoming 4th studio album Present Tense, due for release on March 18. So far, the band has shared three singles that will be part of the album. Alongside “In The Eyes Of Our Love,” they previously unveiled “Mona Lisa” and “Give It Hell.”

Present Tense will serve as the follow-up album to 2020’s Truth or Consequences, and it will arrive almost exactly two years later. “In The Eyes Of Our Love” comes with a video directed by Alex Ross Perry; where the members of the band showcase their acting talent.

The Band Speaks About “In The Eyes Of Our Love”

“Recorded at 204bpm, ‘In The Eyes Of Our Love’ is a rip-roaring belter of a track and the fastest song we’ve ever written,” the band’s Charlie Ryder said in a statement. “What started out as an homage to Fast & The Furious: Tokyo Drift ended up as a love song set against a backdrop of torture and insurrection stoked by the Nixon administration, so if you like songs with two bridges and strong socialist leanings, then ‘In The Eyes Of Our Love’ could be the track for you!”

“Agreeing to make three interconnected videos was something I should have thought about for longer than 15 seconds; before agreeing to it,” Perry added. “The anxiety of conceptualizing a small story, that can be told without dialogue; and set to music, gripped me from the moment my video call with the band ended. Their thoughts were excellent, specific, and unachievable with the time and resources I would be able to pull together.”
