Hailing from Auckland NZ, four-piece post-punk outfit Yukon Era unveil the video for their recently released single ‘Feel’.
“Feel is a song that touches on personal issues within my life,” explains vocalist Christian Dimick about the fast-paced but sharp number, “feeling absent from others as well as myself, along with feeling crushed by the weight of people’s expectations of me. The striking visuals directed by up and coming directors and photographer Taylor Mansfield and DOP Jake Munro are a visual representation of what happens when you keep things bottled up, and in the band’s own words: “the lead character tries to get involved in social situations, while his inner demons continue to eat away at him.”
Carving out a name for themselves within the local and international post-punk music scenes as the youngest band to perform at Australia’s most iconic festival St Jerome’s Laneway, as well as creating the Auckland’s coolest all-ages festival AGEOLD, the boys have extensively toured NZ as headliners, as well as notching up opening slots for big international acts including Mac Demarco, Japandroids, Viet Cong and METZ. Having recently completed a 15 date NZ/AUS tour, selling out four shows in NZ in support of their latest single ‘Tongue’, which reached #3 on the NZ Alternative charts, while their first two EPs garnered attention and praised from the likes of Noisey, Tone Deaf, Impose Magazine, Sniffers, and TheWireless.
Named as one of the Top 8 Kiwi guitar bands by Impose Magazine, which praised them for their “old-fashioned rock and roll cut from the same cloth as Polvo andFugazi– embedded with a hint of classic kiwi jangle. A post-punk band on the rise, with the confidence and skill to make it big.”
Making their mark on the international music scene, with recent performances including this year’s Great Escape festival, Yukon Era are aiming high, with the release of the striking visuals for ‘Feel’, and their upcoming debut album slot for Autumn 2018, it’s clear that the young band is set to make set to make their mark on the international music scene.
