London four-piece Yuck recently made a stop in Seattle while on tour in the US, and like every sensible band that passes through the area, they stopped into KEXP to play a live set. Watch their four-song performance, complete with short interviews between songs, above.
Playing tracks exclusively from their 2013 album Glow & Behold, Yuck showed their classy, shoegaze-influenced chops. Frontman Max Bloom has shown marked improvement since taking over vocal duties when Daniel Blumberg left the band in 2011, now shining as a confident bandleader with a gentle voice and a predilection for guitar pedals. Bassist Mariko Doi provided angelic backing vocals that easily rival those of My Bloody Valentine's Bilinda Butcher or Asobi Seksu's Yuki Chikudate, shoegaze's twin pillars of dreamy female vocals.
With four songs that varied in tempo and mood, Yuck played a well-rounded set that appeared to impress host Stevie Zoom, who interviewed the young band about their tour, recording strategy and brushes with wet paint in the KEXP offices.
