Bio

A wobbly infusion of swirling shoegaze, kaleidoscopic fuzz, energetic disco vibes, and soaring vocals, ZUMA has spent the last 3 years moulding their sound into colourful bedroom mixtures of psych-tinged pop-rock. Split between Geelong and Melbourne, the band is starting to draw some serious attention locally, with support slots for Confidence Man, Japanese Wallpaper and MYTHS, festival billings at By The Meadow and impending Grampians Music Festival Emerging Artist slot.

With their long-awaited debut EP set to drop March 1st, ZUMA are set for big things in 2019 including multiple single releases, an EP launch, East Coast tour dates and much more. Watch this space.

There's a lot going on but it somehow all meshes together really well and creates an atmosphere of trust

'aight, you got me with this one. Wasn't quite convinced with this band's first tune but this one's got the goods alright. Dense psych and floating vocals.

I love the kinda world and mindset ZUMA instantly put you in. The kind where you just want to lie back and take every moment in. This is sick. Love what you guys are doing!
