"Yvette are a noise-rock duo from Brooklyn who manage to turn drilling sounds and drones, the hum and clatter of machinery, into riveting entertainment."
"Big Ups sound like the solution. Now we just need to work out what the problem is."
Details of a new London show to follow very soon.
"Guitar-flecked electro at its most hypnotic and sublime" - The Sunday Times
”Unfettered adrenalin rush” – MOJO (4/5)
“A set of refreshing substance” – Clash (8/10)
“Fun with a capital ‘F’, but there are moments of gravitas too. Not easy to do that” – NME (8/10)
"‘The Age of Fracture’ ends with the long walk home and the stark, wiry isolation of instrumental ‘Call Me’. It makes sense – everything has been said." - Fake DIY (4/5)

Moon King featured in this week’s NME.
The album, Obsession, is out now.
The Fly have today premiered a new track from the forthcoming record from Moon King, Obsession.
'Big Dumb Blue Angel' is perhaps as direct as anything the band have so far put their name to. Under two minutes long, it's driven by a sharp vocal melody and shrouded in the buzzsaw of distinctly post-punk guitars and a pointed metallic rhythm section. It's a telling snapshot of Obsession - melodic yet visceral, insistent yet ambiguous - revealing the compelling dichotomy at the heart of Moon King.
Taken from the album Obsession, released 23rd September.
Moon King's 'Only Child' featured in On Repeat in this week's NME.
Pre-order the LP - entitled Obsession, NOT Obsession II - here.
