The YuYa announce their first release of the year with “Kill Lucy” on 16th April 2012
The YuYa start what will be a big year for them with a terminally infectious new single. Day Job Records have announced the release of “Kill Lucy” on the 16th April on download. This is the second single from their eagerly anticipated debut album “A Boy, A Queen and A Fish” scheduled for release later this year.
The title track is a song about jealousy, hatred and possibly admiration! The Jazz indie folk rhythms will set up camp in your head and keep your head buzzing for hours - you too will want to Kill Lucy. The flip side “Stay” is much calmer affair, but equally infectious and a real toe-tapper delivered in what is becoming a signature style.
The two tracks were recorded and mixed at the Jamboree Studios in Teatro Pieve di Ledro, Italy by Nilo Santoni and mastered by the multi-talented Fran Ashcroft (Damian Albarn, Dandy Warhols) of Happy Beat music (www.happybeat.net).
The YuYa have a peerlessly unique, but contemporary, indie- folk sound with the music, created by the Italian flair and musical craft of Eliseo Soardi, already drawing comparisons with Gogol Bordello and Beck, complimented with powerful lead vocals from the London born Constance Dalrymple, that like of which have not been heard since the days of classic female soul singers such as Etta James and Nina Simone. This combination makes for acoustic fuelled, avant-garde, toe-tapping music that is as perfect for sunny Sunday mornings as it is for sing-along Friday evenings.
Currently touring Europe and regular radio play already on the BBC, independent and student radio stations, momentum towards the release of their album in the summer is building. If you haven’t heard them already, we strongly recommend you give them a listen.
