In March 2014, Yikkity released the Separation EP – a five-track taster. Six months on, aBuse, the band’s first full-length album, gets its release to the world. Eight self-penned songs and two instrumentals show the band’s rich musical diversity. It’s certainly not easy listening – the songs reflect the dangerous and uneasy nature of life across the globe, but there’s a belief in human spirit and rebellion which resists the evil portrayed.
Yikkity’s music has its roots in 70s and 80s electronica but it’s not retro. It’s influenced by 80s and 90s house, but it’s not faceless disco music. It wears its influences on its sleeve without being derivative.
The band hails from Forfar and consists of Cameron, John and YiGa. aBuse was written and produced by the three at West Craig Studios by Forfar. Their shared love of artists like Gary Numan, Ladytron, and Depeche Mode is evident, but each member brings his own particular influences to bear, and the outcome is a vibrant, industrial mesh of electronics and melody.
aBuse comes with artwork by talented photographer Andre Govin and is released on KYFIVE which is the electronica subsidiary of Fife online label, Breeze Digital.
