Album Premiere: Youff – ‘Heydays’

Belgian noise rock band Youff are sharing their full-length Heydays, which will be released tomorrow through Bagdaddy Records, Rockerill Records, and Love Mazout Records.

Listen to the album here:

Band member Michiel shares his thoughts:

“So, this album took us a bit longer then normally, probably because we added another member and went through a personnel change. Adding a second guitar meant searching for space in an already pretty saturated musical language. It really was a lesson in learning when to shut up. Sometimes fighting with each other (musically, that is), other times aligned in one—somewhat dark—harmonious groove. I guess it’s also the most varied album we recorded, there’s more melody, a bit more dynamic shifts. Or at least it seems like that to us. I want to be cautious with these kind of ‘our most … album yet’ remarks, because that’s probably the sort of stuff everyone thinks about their latest album, blinded by love for the young one, full of release relief, tooting their own pr horn, high fives all around. Always a bad idea to be your own judge. You do that.”
