British post-punk quintet Yuka Tree premieres a brand new single named The Man In The Leather Laced Shoes. This song represents a highly anticipated follow-up to their critically acclaimed single called Preacher. This relatively new group consists of musicians from Manchester and Sheffield, who are not only recreating the eighties post-punk sound. Quite the contrary, Yuka Tree aims to deliver a quite unique listening experience based upon the blend of several complementary music genres. You may notice how their post-punk sound intervenes with classic punk rock, noise rock, art rock, garage rock, alternative rock, and probably some other ingredients picked up along the way.
Kieran Breese explains: “The song is about power dynamics, trust and perhaps finding it difficult to understand when a relationship is in your best interest or when it is being abused. This could be a romantic, platonic, or organizational relationship.
There are some similarities with eighties post-punk aesthetics, but Yuka Tree unquestionably reveals more as the composition proceeds. You may hear how the noise rock, punk rock, and art rock scene affected their songwriting and composing. There is an eerie atmosphere lurking around, mainly because of the wondrous melodies and harmonies delivered by guitars. The rhythm section provides stable support to the guitar maneuvers, while the lead vocalist offers powerful performance. The Man In The Leather Laced Shoes showcases the brilliance and creativity of the musicians involved in Yuka Tree, who’s evolving with each new single. The single is available on Spotify.
