Y!KES drop new video / single “Uncanny Valley”

New Birmingham noise rock band Y!KES (previously Blank Parody) have exploded onto the scene with their debut single and new video “Uncanny Valley”.

The single, produced by singer Joby Fitzgerald and Magic Garden Studio’s Gavin Monaghan, is an exhilarating exhibition of the band’s ability to combine fuzzy riffs, coarse vocals, catchy Britpop inspired melodies, frantic drums and cutting lyricism. The accompanying video is a grotesquely humorous representation of the song’s intense themes of isolation and stigmatisation, as well as a showcase for their extreme energy and theatricality. This is a band who are primed and ready to break down the doors of the UK rock scene this year.

Following their debut Birmingham and London dates with ‘WAVED’ (The former of which sold out), the band are now about to embark on a run of national dates, this including the Arch Nemesis Tour with VEDA.
