YUCK // New single ‘Get Away’ released today // Live dates for Summer announced

| On 18, Apr 2011

“8/10 – a debut that triumphs purely through its heartbreaking pop songs” – NME

“4 stars – (Yuck have) a winning way with melody, and their layering of guitars with
 noise and rich, ringing tones is rarely short of gorgeous”– Guardian Film and Music

“4 stars – winsome…a winning passion” – Q

“4 stars – the charm of Yuck is rooted in the fundamentals of great songwriting” – Mojo

Watch the video for “Get Away” here:

With their self-titled debut, released on February 21, London four piece Yuck are handily proving that they are more than living up to the buzz that accumulated over 2010. They have garnered acclaim both here and in the US (with the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone and New York Times being big supporters as well as NME, Guardian Film and Music and Uncut over here) and sold out shows on both sides of the pond (they are just about to set off on a tour with Tame Impala, and are set to play their debut shows at SXSW this month), all the while continuing to win new audiences over with their singular brand of effortlessly infectious, gorgeously insouciant indie rock.

Now comes their new single, and one of the most anthemic songs off their album yet, “Get Away”, released in April, a heady mixture of wildly careening guitars, crunching drums and one of the most euphoric choruses in recent memory, with Daniel Blumberg singing, quite aptly, “I just can’t get this feeling off my mind”. This is Yuck in a nutshell – at once nonchalant, addictive and quite simply beautiful – a 3 minute dose of pop perfection in one instant hit.

The band are currently on the road through Europe, but, as previously stated, will be heading to SXSW shortly to play some of the most covetable showcases at the festival. They will then embark on their very own headline tour through the US and Canada right through April, before heading back to the UK for their biggest tour yet through May, ending up in Barcelona for the Primavera Festival.
