Yuno

Signed to Sub Pop earlier this year, Yuno has now announced his debut mini-album for the label, featuring recent singles ‘No Going Back’ and ‘Why For’. Titled ‘Moodie’, the six track release will be out on 15 Jun.

The musician was added to the label’s roster by Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces, who also works as an A&R for Sub Pop. Of his new discovery, he says: “First time I heard Yuno, I peeped, of course, that he possessed all the trappings of a great musician, impeccable taste on his riffs, songs catchy but not corny, familiar but dopely strange. There was seductive magic that I couldn’t, and still can’t, put my finger on, which is the essence of his uniqueness. Kid’s a star, man”.

He’s also very busy. As well as self-producing all of his music, Yuno also creates his own artwork, directs his own videos, and takes his own press photos. Something he doesn’t see changing any time soon. “I like being really hands-on with everything surrounding my music, even now that I’m with Sub Pop”.
