Brooklyn’s YVETTE are Noah Kardos-Fein and Rick Daniel. Taking the primal, ritualistic rawness and physicality from the New York no wave and post-punk scene, they push it towards the noisy, the industrial, and the all-out-abrasive. More than just piercing assaults, however, the duo’s songs are impressive displays of structure, craft, and intent that, while perhaps weird and jarring for some, are ultimately catchy tunes that move you -- as Travis says, “It hurts so good.” In this episode of Serious Business on BTR, the band sweated it out and then sat down to talk about how they write songs, taking time off when you need it, and being anti-shuffling. /// Featured song: “Radiation” /// YVETTE’s self-titled 7” is available on GODMODE Records. /// Complete radio broadcast and playlist: http://b-t-r.co/SeeKaY /// YVETTE’s official site: http://www.yvetteyvetteyvette.com /// Bandcamp: http://yvette.bandcamp.com/ /// Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/YVETTEMUSIC /// Twitter: @___YVETTE___
