Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret with YusYus - An Interview

Uma das grandes revelações da minimal wave é o duo da Sérvia YusYus.

Sem nenhum registro oficial lançado ainda, apenas canções espalhadas em diversas compilações o YusYus impressiona e seduz, vicia e ataca, é instigante o mix de minimal wave e um Q de darkwave, mas o apelo gélido expôe o lado pop e dançante do duo.

Uma das principais revelações dos últimos anos, e digo mais, o debute promete ser dolorosamente sexy.

Q. How do you feel playing live?
- Drunk, jk

To us stage performance it is very important, including the visuals, esthetics and body language, so we dive into our hypnotic vision and the time flies by.

Q. How do you describe YusYus´ sounds?
Its a subtile mix of cold and warm, emotion and sex, violence and frustration.

We record when we can with the help from our friends from Zagreb, "How Convinient" studio. They did a super job producing and mastering all of our songs. We also do some recordings in "Studio 11" in Subotica. We are slowly investing in hardware, so we will be more independent in the future.

Maoupa Mazzocchetti, Deutschland Western, The Flesh Community, SOK, Trieste..

Later on we will release our first EP that was recorded live on our concert in Drugstore Belgrade, on our Perfekt Funktion label.

In march 2015. we will release maxi single for Tacura Records.

Q: Any parting words?
Listen to minimal synth and eat muffins.
