Listen to Yuck’s new single ‘Cannonball’

Yuck share new single "Cannonball". The song comes off their forthcoming LP 'Stranger Things', out February 26th via Mamé Records.

Yuck’s new single “Cannonball” follows previously released Stranger Things singles “Hold Me Closer” and “Hearts in Motion”, and most recently, their surprise non-album cover of Fugazi’s “Cashout”.

Released online last summer, the record’s first song “Hold Me Closer” is a good taste for what the rest of the record has in store. “I remember the first couple of songs that started the record off, I basically wrote one morning when I was very high on coffee,” says Bloom. “I guess it set the tone for everything that came after that.”

Recorded in London over the course of several months at the band’s own pace, Stranger Things reflects the refreshingly un-fraught state of affairs within the group. “The band feels better now than it ever has,” says Bloom, “We recorded the drums in a rehearsal studio by our house, which we’ve rehearsed at for ages. Everything else was done at my parent’s house–in the same room we recorded the first record, which wasn’t an intentional thing. It’s just the only quiet space that we have access to in London! Mostly I wanted to make the in a space that I was comfortable in. I wanted no one else involved–just me and Ed and Mariko and Johnny. I just wanted to get on with it and make something that was truly us and not affected by any outside influences. We basically spent no money on the record and it was a really relaxed way of doing things. I really, really like it. I’m more proud of it than anything we’ve ever done.”
