You are face to face with a fresh promising indie quintet originating from London. After their previous group Cajun Dance Party, Bloom and Blumberg form Yuck, while experimenting with new sounds. New Jersey drummer Jonny meets with Blumberg at a kibbutz in the Israeli desert, and some months after he gives in quitting his college degree. Soon Doi from Japan responds the request for a female bassist, and with Blumberg’s sister Ilana the band’s self-titled debut album sheds light through Fat Possum on the 21th of February 2011 in the UK.
Yuck might sound to you like Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth. What makes them special is their own approach both to the grunge and shoegaze revivals. Among the other meanings that word Yuck has, one of which is ‘something gross’ eg. ‘ That dirty sock pile is a big yuck.’, here is another meaning to your ears!
