Yuma wins The Deli Readers' Best of Austin Poll for Indie Rock/Pop Category

It's no surprise to see the charismatic loungy indie quartet, Yuma, atop the readers poll for 'Best Emerging Indie Rock Artist of 2016'. Technically proficient but structurally unfettered, Yuma curates a refreshing dynamic of psychedlic-infused prog rock. The real lure of the group are their live performances which demand a no-gimmick focus on their melodies and choruses yet allows the listener to dance and lose themselves in the band's intrinsic joviality. Yuma's momentum continues to snowball, and 2017 should hold a myriad new milestones.
