Now Playing: Yuno – 'No Going Back'

Monday, March 5, 2018

With hints of Tame Impala through the pumping drum and bass line, powerful falsetto, and constant staccato of synthesiser, American artist Yuno creates a feeling of nostalgia that sweeps over us like a comforting blanket. 

Having recently signing to Subpop, the label most famous for bands such as Nirvana, Soundgarden and more pioneers of modern rock, Yuno is on his A-game with this dreamy psych-pop gift to us. He creates a heavenly stream of constant movement throughout the song, while also keeping it static by leading us through with an unchanging bassline. The vocals and searing hot guitar solo provides enough flavour to keep everything interesting and flowing smoothly.

With that being said, it is a perfect example of KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), and that aspect shines through again with the accompanying film clip that follows Yuno around NYC as he hangs out in different places around the city by himself, or gets driven around in his friend’s car, or headbangs in the parking lot.

Hopefully we get to see more from Yuno in the near future because with a single this good, you can only assume the rest of the album will be incredible.
