Yuck channel their college-rock jones with skill and charm, balancing in-the-red guitar fuzz with melodic sweetness.—— Rolling Stone


With comparisons to Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine, Yuck shoulder an immense burden. It seems almost impossible for the London-based fuzz-pop outfit to emulate or even meet the acclaim, plaudits and success that the aforementioned shoegaze legends have wallowed in. However, Yuck are giving it a blimmin’ good try.

Two of the members (Max Bloom and Daniel Blumberg – though the latter has subsequently scarpered to participate in solo project Hebronix) are Cajun Dance Party alumni, bringing their indie experience into the fold. This adds a sense of warmth and melody that shoegaze often lacks, and gives Yuck a vital edge amid the slurry of distortion permeating the airwaves these days. Together on stage they cut meandering shapes, swooning about in a delirious haze and swaying in the wind like fey sunflowers. However, when the time calls for intensity, they wear fingertips to the bone strumming, thwacking and picking with the force of 10,000 ’90s rockers. They may appear chillaxed on first glance, but they can delve into utter sonic insanity on a whim, spinning off hook-laden pop tunes like “The Wall”, “Milkshake” and “Rebirth” with a maniacal pep. Their shows are mesmerising, blending the elegiac tranquillity of layered guitar rock, and the effervescent buzz of bubblegum pop. (by Larryday)
