words by Max Byrne

This is the first offering from Yuuca, a five-piece band from Brisbane, and while they are currently shrouded in mystery, one thing can be certain: they are filling the empty void where Snakadaktal and New Navy once sat, and they are doing it extremely well.

‘Breathe’ is a term that perfectly describes this song; it’s fluttery dream rock that transitions smoothly between verse and chorus and as cliché as this sounds, it feels like a breathe of fresh air.

The minimal verse driven by snare rolls and guitar riffs morph into the chorus as the layered guitars and synths create a bed of easy listening bliss. The track then spins into an instrumental haze of guitar and gliding synths.

Keep an eye out for more material from these guys. We definitely will be.
