Yuck announce new album, Stranger Things, share lead single “Hearts in Motion” — listen

on January 12, 2016, 3:30pm

Late last year brought the surprise release of a new track from Yuck called “Hold Me Closer”. Turns out it’s the lead single to the UK noise rockers’ forthcoming studio album, Stranger Things, out February 26th via Mamé Records. Today, the 11-track LP is being previewed with another new cut, “Hearts in Motion”.

“’Hearts In Motion’ is a song about how we deal with relationships,” says singer Max Bloom. “We’re all just blasting through space on a huge rock, so what’s the point in maintaining a relationship? Is it all just doomed to failure, or is it the one thing that we should be holding on to the most in this world? Who knows!”

The track finds the band extremely comfortable in their garage pop sound, hook-ridden and driving. Guitars bop about even as they build to a slightly dejected fall, an experience much like keeping a positive outlook even as your heart breaks a little. Take a listen below.
