London-based quartet Yuck presented their third and latest studio album with a moody show at the Great American Music Hall last month.

Formed in 2009, the band consists of drummer Jonny Rogoff, guitarist Ed Hayes, bassist Mariko Doi and lead vocalist/guitarist Max Bloom. Stranger Things is the name of Yuck’s brand-new LP, which came out more than a month ago, and according to Wikipedia, the four-piece recorded it in Bloom’s parents’ house in London.

It was a small crowd at GAMH for a Saturday night, and the wait for Yuck to finally play felt long enough. But after Big Thief and Vaadat Charigim performed opening sets, these four rockers finally hit the stage.

Their sound is regarded as shoegaze, and it does echo something pretty outdated. Then again, the 90’s revival is right around the corner — in which case, Yuck could be the sound of a new trend, a recycle of sounds if you will. If you go green on this analogy, make sure to also check out DIIV from Brooklyn, N.Y.
