Alternative pop group Yumi Zouma began as a long-distance home-recording project between friends online. After releasing their four-track ‘EP I’ in 2014, the music was embraced by the blogosphere, and by the time ‘EP II’ arrived a year later, the group had begun playing live, touring with fellow New Zealander, Lorde. In 2016, the band released their debut full-length album, Yoncalla, after a week at Philippe Zdar’s Motorbass studios in Paris. Their second full-length, Willowbank, arrived in 2017 as a more organic take on the electropop of their debut. The band completed a trilogy of EPs with the release of ‘EP III’ in 2018, before the band's third album, Truth or Consequences, was released in March 2020, via new labels Polyvinyl Record Co. and Inertia Music.The day before the release of Truth or Consequences, the band played the first show of their sold-out album release tour. As the band left the stage that night, they learned that COVID-19 had been declared a pandemic by the WHO, and that the rest of the tour was cancelled. After flying back home the next day, the band began to contemplate how to harness their creative energy and love for their new record whilst under lockdown. A solution was found to reimagine every song on Truth or Consequences as they would on tour, a process that would give birth to a new record, Truth or Consequences - Alternate Versions, released in October 2020
