Yuck - Hearts in Motion

It’s pretty much like the rush of adrenaline before accidentally swiping left on your Tinder crush

Dropping the grunge scene that they dabbled in for a while, and fully armed with a new pop-punk tasting track, Yuck have returned to the New Year. ‘Hearts In Motion’ embodies the signature traits the band have always presented; with contagious riffs and stand-out vocals being only more confident and more in-your-face, truly basking in the attitude of a self-assured band. Mimicking the motions of this century’s relationships, the track revels in ecstatic guitar patches, before crashing down to a drastic halt and allowing time for some heart-felt vocals. It’s pretty much like the rush of adrenaline before accidentally swiping left on your Tinder crush. Dramatically shouts of “two hearts in motion, have to beat at the same time” emphasise exactly how much doubt and confusion frontman Max Bloom has in the modern day world of romance. The outro seems emotionally confused, too, with a momentary downfall suddently interrupted with saturated drums. Then, Yuck pick up the pieces again, closing the song with room for one more emotive statement. It’s clear Yuck are pretty settled with this release, allowing their loudness to do the talking. Creating something that’s hard to say no to, it’s obvious to say that’s going to be common theme on their third album, ‘Stranger Things’.
