No Wukkas are an explosive four piece from Yorkshire specialising in wonky psychedelic rhythms and high energy performances. The band pride themselves on straying from the beaten path, taking influences from the Australian Psych scene to create a sound seldom heard on UK stages. Creating a breath of fresh air from the post punk dystopia, fans of Black Midi, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and old school Black Sabbath will adore No Wukkas, and the band has already got a devoted following across Leeds having played legendary venues such as the Brudenell Social Club supporting Fizzy Blood and Pulled Apart By Horses within the first 8 months of performing together.
Following on from their debut release “Awkward Positions” which won Amazing Radio’s “Audition Poll” and second single “Sick Stan”, comes the psychedelic rollercoaster that is ‘THT’ a song embodying the ecstasy and despair of being abroad. Chaotic, striking guitar passages dictate a fierce 11/8 groove with screamed vocals reminiscent of early Tame Impala records recounting the desire to stay in the sun counterbalanced by the inevitable homesickness and sunstroke that comes from an unfamiliar environment. Just when you think the song can’t go any more left field, the energy dissipates into a soothing meditative spoken word section with Latin Jazz inspired chords, bringing a fresh perspective on the come down and hangovers faced in the Mediterranean twilight. THT is a live favourite for good reason, and No Wukkas themselves have said how fun it is watching people try to dance in such a wonky time signature.
