Yuck at the Sinclair London-grown fuzz-pop brimming with steely noise and sprawling energy Shook Down The Wall (s) at Cambridge's Sinclair last Wednesday night.
Alvvays, a Toronto band, opened for Yuck. They unleashed a flowery, summery throwback bop-till-you-pop sound. They found a niche and they work it well. Their song "Adult Diversion" is really catchy, light, and simple. Lyrically, they present no challenges, just lines that convey complex emotions in two sentences or less with which they repeat until you are forced to used terms like "bop-till-you-pop".
They are super catchy and sweet, definitely check them out despite their arcane internet presence, you can listen to two of their songs on soundcloud.
