South African musician Yum Yuck (otherwise known as Pascal Righini) has just released his single “Wormwood” and it’s the perfect addition to your summer road-trip playlists. Known for creating a personal experience for his listeners, Pascal’s nostalgic lyrics and dreamy guitar strums create a sound reminiscent of The Cure, or Porches. He shared his excitement for the new song in a recent Instagram post:
When I wrote Wormwood I felt like I was tapping into a space musically that I hadn’t been to in a while, an old neighbourhood so to speak, the creation of this song was really visceral and hugely enjoyable to me and I’m thankful for that. I hope people can feel the freedom and the shedding of skin that the song aims to capture.
The song serves as the first track to his album, which is coming later this year, and we can’t wait to hear more of this unique artist’s sound. Until then, you can listen to Yum Yuck’s song “Wormwood” below. Enjoy!
