Yuck may have released a warmly received second LP “Glow and Behold” last year, but they are hardly resting on their laurels.

Currently playing to packed venues in the US, the London four piece have also recorded a brand new EP, to be released later this spring. This, the lush, miasmic sigh of “Athena” is the first taster, and sees frontman Max Bloom taking the band in a new, hitherto unexplored direction, one that is dreamier, more gorgeous and more layered than anything they’ve done before.

But never mind us – here’s a word from the band themselves about the EP:

'Hey everyone!
Instead of staying in and watching TV this Christmas, we all got together and recorded a few new songs, the first of which we're very happy to show you now. Athena will be the first of 4 tracks from our new EP. Keep your ears to the ground for more new tracks in the next few weeks! And special thanks to everyone who has come to our shows on this US tour so far, they've all been great. We're about halfway through now, so check out our Facebook for the remaining dates!
Keep your stick on the ice,

The album “Glow and Behold” is out now on Fat Possum/ Pharmacy Recording Co.
