Listen: Yuck’s new song “Athena”

on January 30, 2014, 11:40am

Just a few months after the release of their sophomore album, October’s Glow & Behold, Yuck return with brand new music. “This Christmas instead of staying in and watching TV we got together and recorded a few new songs, the first of which we’re extremely proud to show you right now,” the band wrote on their Facebook page.

Update: The band will release a new EP, Southern Skies, in the Spring.

“Athena” picks up where the band’s last LP left off, a hazy shoegaze number painted in melancholic shades of purple and grey. Marooned in the metaphorical fog is frontman Max Bloom, calling out through the noise, “I don’t even know where do I stand / Where do I stand?” Listen in below.

The band will soon kick off an extensive tour across the US and Europe.
