'Age Of Consent' gets re-worked...

Yuck have stepped in to cover New Order's classic single 'Age Of Consent'.

Yuck are always pegged as a grunge act, but really the band's roots go much further than that. Sharply melodic songwriting with an aching, melancholic feel, the band sit in that great British tradition of making depressing pop music.

Which makes them perfect candidates to cover New Order, then. Recently recording a live session at the legendary RAK Studios in North West London, the band focussed on their upcoming second album.

Four tracks were recorded, and - with the day drawing to a close - Yuck decided to throw in a curveball. Tackling New Order's classic single 'Age Of Consent' the group have their own take on the synth-pop 45.

Amplifying the effects, it's a dreamy, fuzzed up version which retains the urgent drive of the original. Slacker pop, this ain't.

Watch the session below.

Yuck are set to release their second album 'Glow And Behold' on October 1st. The band have confirmed the following shows:

17 London The Macbeth
18 London The Macbeth
19 London The Macbeth
