Get 'Wreckless' with Yassassin on their brand new single

Dork faves Yassassin are back with a brand new single and video.

Currently on the road with The Strokes’ guitarist Albert Hammond Jr, the quintet have returned with new cut ‘Wreckless’ - three and a bit minutes of vampy feedback and enough cinematic squeal to burn straight through the Celluloid . It comes alongside an arty black and white clip that - almost quite literally - throws everything in. You can check it out below.

“‘Wreckless’ is about a feeling, when you’ve just met someone new but you’re not sure what you want because you want it all; to be free, to be in love,” the band explain. “To get to know someone, yet not commit but still sort of longing for the other person to turn out to be the one. It’s reflecting on the passionate moments you have together, but when you’re alone the doubts of what it is lingers like an illness…

For the video we wanted to create something visually unsettling but still retaining an air of humour. The weird gross shots and objects flying everywhere along with our deadpan characters goes hand in hand with the change of pace and tone in the song.”

So there we go.

‘Wreckless’ is available on 7” vinyl with b-side ‘Sinner’ and on all digital platforms now.

Yassassin continue their stint on the road with Albert Hammond Jr tonight in Manchester, before hitting Glasgow, London, Bristol and Brighton, followed by a quick hop over the water to Paris.

11 Manchester, Club Academy
12 Glasgow, SWG3
14 London, Electric Ballroom
15 Bristol, Thekla

Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
