"Rebirth" is the first single from the band's upcoming new album, (which I guess is still lacking a title), and works its way through the harmonized textures of fuzz-laden shoegazing r 'n r. Is it good? Sure — just derivative. As indicated by the single, this is something the band hasn't changed.
Since My Bloody Valentine decided to follow-up their widely celebrated opus with a new album this year, I'm not sure Yuck continues to fill the void left vacant for years during the subsequent tides of late 90s nü metal and alterna-hackery and the garage revivalism and indie nostalgia campaigns that took place through most of the 00s. Yuck sounded kind of refreshing despite its homage-worthy output. That being said, will they remain relevant? Thoughts? Feel free to comment.

Yuck are very excited to unveil the first brand new track from their forthcoming LP, due this Fall on Fat Possum in North America.
Gorgeous and chiming, burnished and glowing, "Rebirth" unfurls slowly yet majestically, giving up its charms gradually. Anchored by lead singer Max Bloom's beautifully assured vocals, it is at once intrinsically Yuck while at the same time hinting at the start of an exciting new chapter for the band.
The much anticipated second album will arrive later this year on Pharmacy Recording Co/ Fat Possum. Produced by Chris Coady (Beach House, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On the Radio), it is bound to be one of the most treasured new albums of the year. Read more about the making of the album over at SPIN.
