Yakima from Glasgow find calmness amongst chaos in their hazy, lo-fi debut "Judy's Lament".
The Glaswegian quartet Yakima have revealed their debut single "Judy's Lament".
Swaying gracefully from grey-skied washy guitar riffs and a tip-tapping beat like raindrops on a window, "Judy's Lament" introduces Yakima as a group collating their influences that range from Parquet Courts to Pavement, and shaking it up to create a soothing, shoegaze lullaby.
The lo-fi vocals hold a slightly melancholic tone, drowned in the hazy guitars and washed out on the choppy waves.
Speaking about the track, Paul Bradley says, “the track narrates the nebulous veil induced by interminable wakefulness."
Despite It feeling sad in parts, but the track is bizarrely uplifting too, and by the final 30 seconds the grey tones and clouds part ways to allow a splash of colour on the picturesque postcard.
Yakima have been working with fellow lo-fi shoegazers Benji Compston and Jon EE Allan from Happyness, who are producing Yakima's debut album
