INFOBOXGenre(s): Indie/Alternative, Pop
From: Styria, Austria
One thing is unmistakable: Yukno has something completely different in mind than following the beaten path. Yukno – spoken like “you know” – is a band that approaches “discreetly electronic indie pop” from a slightly different perspective.
The brothers Georg and Nikolaus Nöhrer are not interested in creating a party mood – their songs adorned with thoughtful German-language lyrics reveal themselves as a musical invitation to let yourself go for a few moments and immerse yourself in the fine melodies, danceable beats, and the space-filling synths. In their songs, the two-man team from Styria develops a very special mood, one that draws some influences from the musical past of pop music, but also – without being ingratiating – hits the current Zeitgeist.
The duo released two EP’s in 2015 and 2016, followed by their debut album “Ich kenne kein Weekend” (Yukno the Records) in February 2018. For their upcoming record the duo crossed the equator for a rich and formative trip during which they developed a new sound inspired by collaborations with local artists in Zanzibar.
