Whilst the Yuck live show may be full of fuzzy noise pop and squalling guitars, there’s another more restrained side to this band. We first wrote about Automatic a few months back and now Yuck have released a simple video for song, shot from an aircraft coming in to land. Automatic is a slow burning tranquil hymn formed out of simple piano and hushed harmonies - it’s built for that late night come down. So perfectly full of restraint and calm in its structure, it coaxes you into sitting perfectly still as it plays. Automatic deserves to be heard quietly rather than loud, like listening to a light rain against the window.
The band are due to play Latitude, Field Day and Bestival festivals in the UK this summer and an album, which has a working title of “Sexy Album” is being recorded on old fashioned 8 track recorder. We look forward to hearing the results. For now, fingers on lips, shhhhh..... listen to the sound of beauty. Yuck - Automatic.
