Great Ytene’s self-titled, debut EP is a brilliant record that goes through a whole range of genres and is yet another excellent find from the Bella Union label.
Full of fuzzy guitars and hazy vocals this EP is a piece of lo-fi majesty, kicking off with the brilliant Away From Now. Then on tracks such as Birds the band manage to seamlessly combine surf pop and psychedelic tones to make an immense tune. The EP ends with the epic feeling Surburban Lights which has a brilliant shoegaze element to it, although Great Ytene combine a number of genres the record never feels overcrowded and is a truly impressive debut.
