premiere: Yoo-Yoo – “Pet Shop Boys”
Yoo-Yoo is a new group from Sweden that, as former Korallreven member Marcus Joons tells us via email, is "made up by Korallreven, ORKID, Thanxxx, friends and lovers". Their blissed-out debut single elicits a breezy wistfulness and the distinct, welcome tinge of instant nostalgia, not unli…
