Y!KES are a shambolic anti-pop quartet from middle England. With Bombastic Drums, riffs bigger than elephants, scathing lyrics and vocals grittier than the gravel on Satan’s driveway, they are here with one objective – to write MASS!VE TUNES! Visual storytellers in which you’ll find neon vampires, Terry the Alien and the legendary Bear Frills, a 6ft Teddy Bear with human teeth. Y!KES exist to provoke thought in the mind, angst in the soul and fire in the heart.
Since forming in February 2019 and addition of Oli Long in September 2019, the line up was seen complete. Since then, we released our highly well received EP ‘EP!C’ in February 2020 spawning singles among the likes of ‘Hold On To Your Grudge’ alongside a blinding set at HARD ROCK HELL and supports with Vukovi, Counterfeit, Reef, Buckcherry and King Nun.
Our second EP ‘MASS!VE’ is out now which you can find via Apple Music & Spotify etc. Our latest single ‘Step Away’ is out now so go and check it out alongside a video on youtube!
Y!KES are Oli, Liam, TJ + Ford. We cordially invite you to the chaos!
‘Anthemic tunes with choppy chords, gnarled vocals and ground shaking drums. It’s quite the masterpiece’ – Indie Buddie
‘Step Away’ exhibits a little bit more class and maturity as they utilise the condemned pop hooks in the chorus to their advantage, camouflaged amidst the fleeting guitar solo’ – Freak Magazine.
‘Y!KES exist to provoke thought in the mind, angst in the soul and rage in the heart. This song achieves just that and then some with its grungy guitars and gritty vocals.’ – Independent Music News.
