Yumi Zouma was signed to NY label Cascine almost overnight and resulted in a critically acclaimed first EP, which made waves through publications from Gorilla vs Bear and Pitchfork, to SPIN and NME magazines (amongst others). Yumi Zouma's music frequented #1 on blog aggregator The Hype Machine. Yumi Zouma then toured the world, playing sold out dates supporting Chet Faker in Australia, festivals in the UK and Europe, and club shows in the US, as well as supporting Lorde on the NZ leg of her Pure Heroine tour. In 2015 Yumi Zouma's second EP, EP II was released.
In September of 2015 she released her debut EP Bad Humors followed by a small US and NZ tour. The EP received positive reviews from fans and publications alike,
The best of Kim Pflaum's hazy songs are propelled by dance grooves and hidden melancholy. As a member of New Zealand dream pop band Yumi Zouma, her voice was a key layer, adding an essential longing to their finest moments. She left that group at the end of 2014 and started a solo synth-pop project called Madeira. After a handful of collaborations, the first Madeira single, "Let Me Down", creates a woozy atmosphere for Pflaum to work within: guided by an understated beat, it comes off like a laid-back Toro Y Moi song.' - Pitchfork
In July 2017 Kim moved to London and is currently working on her debut Madeira album which she hopes to release late 2018.
