More cowbell, more fuzz… that is the motto of Yur Mum who relocated from their native Brazil to London and since their 2016 inception, the band have worked relentlessly to spread their noise, fuzz and no fucks attitude to the capital of Britain. Recently stepping down to a two-piece, Yur Mum are back with their second studio album ‘Tropical Fuzz’.
‘Tropical Fuzz’ is what happens when a tropical earthquake blows through the area; this is a warm, muggy record which hangs heavy in the air and the fuzz barometer is about to explode. This is the sound of a band adapting to a being a duo with ease, they were born to do this, and they take to it like a duck to water. Who needs a guitar when you can crank the bass distortion up? Yur Mum doesn’t, that’s for sure. Tracks such as ‘Banana Republic’, ‘Sweatshop’ and ‘Dig Deep’ really hammer home what this band are all about, it’s alternative, it’s punky, it’s grungey and it’s not afraid to go hardcore when needed. In fact, if the Seattle scene exploded now instead of 1991, this is what it would sound like.
Yur Mum are doing something really cool here and they really do give no fucks about doing it either. It’s decent DIY fuzz and once you get over the bands crap name, you’ll find something that is thoroughly enjoyable.
