New Yuko Single Has Landed.

Acclaimed London based blog Dots & Dashes have premiered Yuko's new single, While You Figure Things Out. It is the first single taken from their upcoming album Long Sleeves Cause Accidents, due April 7, and also the first new Yuko music in three years.

Dots & Dashes writes: "While You Figure Things Out  is a highly refined, wholly focussed work of drive and steadfast determination. Simultaneously reminiscent of Jónsi’s Go, Grizzly Bear’s Shields and those most introspective and off-kilter instances of Thom Yorke’s catalogue, if due deference is paid to its muses, then never is the song itself in any way derivative. For this is itself slick, nay, inspiratory stuff." We couldn’t agree more. 

Long Sleeves Cause Accidents will be released April 7 on cd / vinyl + cd / iTunes. 
Album release show: Minard Gent, April 16.

Please Meet Strand.

Strand is the new solo project of Bert Dockx (Flying Horseman and Dans Dans). His first album is coming up on Unday after the summer. Two tracks will already be featured on a special limited edition 7inch vinyl, that will be released on Record Store Day (19/04). Undoubtedly one of Belgium’s most inspired and gifted musicians and songwriters, Bert now embarks on an acoustic solo trip. Those familiar with Bert’s enthralling output will be worked up already, and the fact that the Strand lyrics are in Dutch for the first time will only make things even more interesting.

22tracks Takeover.

To celebrate the release of Music For Undays, we got the chance to create our very own 22tracks playlist. It became a careful selection from the label’s short history, avoiding the obvious – as we always do. We even added a few unreleased and upcoming tracks.

Coming Up: New Yuko Album.

The new Yuko album is coming out in April. It’s full of erratic and unpredictable pop tunes with baroque influences: sometimes delicate, sometimes ‘in your face’, but always stunning. The classical influences make Yuko’s sound harder than ever to pin down, but who cares? ‘Long Sleeves Cause Accidents’ is a fascinating and layered tale, told by an engaging band, with an attitude.

A first track taken from the album (‘The Idealist’) is already featured on ‘Music For Undays’. Don’t get fooled by the subtle nature of this one though, Yuko just might have a few more tricks up their sleeves… Stay tuned.
