Yours – How Much You Can Take – Audio

Yours is a relatively new electro-hum duo from England who will be releasing their début EP Hard To Speak on the 27th of November through Tiny Hits.



To surface within the past few hours is the three quarter mark of the four tracks – How Much You Can Take.

Yours deliver warming affection which nestles like a lovers wrestling with relationship breakdown as How Much Can You Take gently caresses with a bitter-sweet farewell.

The track evokes of moments of memories of trysts with subtle shifts in temperament which yaw betwixt longing and loathing and I raise my hat to Yours for being able to create material which so successfully captures that emotive conundrum. A grounding synth disintegrates to purple velvet of passionate emotionality, whilst electronic drum pad is deployed, not to add loops rather, sentient commentary as a dour vocal expresses longing sadness.

Of particular note, the fleeting pin-drops of percussion that appear in the section between seven and fifteen seconds, never to resurface – for me, mark the quality of Yours, as they understand completely when an idea has done everything it needs to and for that brevity and subtlety, remains in the mind long after How Much Can You Take has ended.
