10 years after the release of their debut album ‘Yuck’, guitarist Max Bloom announced through the band’s social media channels that they will ‘no longer be releasing music or touring together.’
Formed in 2009 from the ashes of Cajan Dance Party, the London group mixed elements of indie rock, shoegazing, and noise rock. They signed to Fat Possum Records and recorded their first album in 2010 at Max Bloom’s parents house. The band supported the likes of Tame Impala and Unknown Mortal Orchestra and received critical acclaim from Pitchfork and NME.
A year later, frontman and rhythm guitarist Daniel Blumberg left the group in 2013 to follow his own solo career. Yuck would go on to release two further albums, ‘Glow & Behold’ in 2013 and their final release ‘Stranger Things’ in 2016.
Their final performance together was with Powerplant, Lewsberg and Norman at Moth Club on 14th October 2019.
