Following on from the success of their previous releases, EP!C & MASS!VE, Birmingham anti-pop quartet Y!KES announce the release of their first single in 2021, “Long Gone Silver”. Known for their bombastic drums, massive riffs and vocalist Oli Long’s unique vocal talents and persona, their latest single perfectly captures everything that the band stands for. Liam Howard, Guitarist explains “Written in the heat of global frustration, Long Gone Silver smacks against the rage with massive guitars, bass hooks, punchy drums & sinister vocals to remind the world that music is alive, kicking & screaming”.


Adding to Liam’s comments, Vocalist Oli says “Excuse the pun, but I guess we are all somewhat in the same boat now. So what should we have done? Sat around twiddling our thumbs… or turn our shared frustration into something we can sing and dance to? I thought so. We wrote this as an almost sarcastic reminder that although tempting to rid one’s inhibitions daily through a chosen vice or activity. Sometimes it’s a good idea to check what day it is & ensure that you and your friends aren’t bleeding out.”
