Yu(c)k - Daughter

A while back when we posted the latest instalment from Yuck we questioned why they had changed their name to Yu(c)k and also how you pronounced this new slightly pretentious name (although we would like to stress there is nothing wrong with pretentiousness sometimes - we positively celebrate this characteristic in certain cases). We still don’t have the answer to the second question, but apparently the name is to differentiate their noisy effect laden fuzz pop from the rather touching and graceful quiet songs that they are also producing. Their two live sets we’ve seen have both been of the rackety kind; hopefully at some point we’ll be able to share their softer intimacy as well.

So here’s another new slice of elegant simplicity from Yu(c)k. Daughter is a magical ballad, full of cuddle-in-the-darkness loveliness.
