Yuck's Max Bloom faced down new songwriting challenges on his band's second album by concentrating on making Glow & Behold a more cohesive, concise whole.
The London band's 2011 self-titled debut drew widespread praise on both sides of the Atlantic for its invigorating take on 1990s alternative rock. For Yuck's follow-up, the band absorbed the departure of frontman Daniel Blumberg by tightening its circle of influences and bringing in a new producer to hone the sound.
"The preparation was quite exciting, thinking more in terms of an album and which track would go where," Bloom says.
Moving from a songwriting partnership with Blumberg that predated Yuck (the duo previously played in Cajun Dance Party) to one that featured him at the forefront allowed him to stick to his initial vision, he says, working to contain the energy from Yuck and pouring it into a new record. -- Eric Swedlund
