Yum Yuck released a brand new single on the 24th of February 2023 entitled “Thorns”
It’s a a song about hidden sadness and day-to-day life between troubled souls in love. The sound of Thorns is intimate and expressive.
An evolving acoustic and electric guitar progression build tension then ease and open up as the song unfolds. Yum Yuck navigates the listener through a relationship where one person masks their feelings, leaving the other to bear the weight of their pain. The nostalgic sounds combined with modern production create a liberating feeling to the nuanced tone and message of the song.

I like the dreaminess of this track. It transported me away from the madness that is South Africa at the moment for the entirety of the track (2 minutes and 47 seconds).
