So, here's the problem with Yuck:
As has been the case since their debut LP, Yuck is as throwback as a throwback can be. Their new single, "Chew," earned itself an interesting amount of "sounds familiar" comments on Soundcloud and, listening to the track, it's a remarkable lift. Granted, similarities and derivations are inescapable, many bands either tapping their influences closely, acting with homage-like flattery or utilizing their peers as a precipice from which to begin their own thing. While "Chew" sounds like it's resultant from multiple spins of Egg Hunt's two-song 7," Nothing Is Shocking by Jane's Addiction and Smashing Pumpkins' Siamese Dream, Yuck loves them some early 90s alternative and the band replicates it well. But, the eternal question begs: Are we moving forward or thriving on nostalgia?
Yuck's debut was reviewed at No Ripcord.
