Discovery: Yuka Tree

Yuka Tree are a post-punk outfit who spilt their time in Manchester and Sheffield. Their moody new track The Man In The Leather Laced Shoes is full of scuzzy riffs and a healthy dose of paranoia.

From the off, the urgent guitar melodies of The Man In The Leather Laced Shoes don’t let off. Combined with driving percussion and gritty, passionate vocals, they all add up to something quite intense. There’s only one antidote – bang your head and throw yourself around!

The quintet of Yuka Tree released their debut single Preacher last year, receiving attention from the likes of Radio X. This follow up has been some time in the making, but it’s been worth the wait.
