It's been three long years since we last saw Yuck at Laneway Festival Singapore 2012, and in between that span of time, the scuzzy, noise-pop indie outfit have released not one, but two new albums! Their latest is entitled Stranger Things (unrelated to the hit Netflix show of the same name), and its an admirable exercise in catchy choruses, sharp songwriting and 90s'-influenced craftsmanship.
Its obvious that they still wear their influences on their sleeves (Dinosaur Jr, Teenage Fanclub, Pixies Sonic Youth, etc), and that ain't a bad thing. Their dreamy indie rock meets shoegaze direction is full or wit and charm, and as their third LP proves, the band's sound has matured nicely since their name-making debut record on Fat Possum.

Next month, Yuck returns to our shores for their first ever headlining show in Singapore thanks to promoters Songs For Children! The popular British band will also be supported by Singaporean dream-pop standouts SUBSONIC EYE, alongside live visuals from Mike Mystery and a DJ set from Jane Blondel. Early bird and advance tickets are only going for between $40-$55 so we'd urge you to jump on this quick.
Songs For Children presents Yuck happens at Hood Bar and Cafe on Tuesday, September 13. Tickets are available via Peatix.
