The track is an uncomfortable statement of intent from the outfit and one that leaves a lasting impression.
Never ones to shy away from controversial or poignant topics with their sound, hard-hitting and explosive Norwich outfit Sleemo continue to showcase the abrasive darkness and rawness of their sound on their latest single ‘Y.A.N.O.’ (You Are Not Owned).
The track showcases an outfit at their scathing and uncompromising best, taking aim at the mundanity of modern life and the lengths that we are willing to push ourselves with drugs and alcohol to attempt to escape from it. The sludgy nature of the sound and the atmospheric doom makes for the perfect backdrop for such a nihilistic narrative, and makes for one of the most impactful and explosive alternative rock tracks that you’re likely to hear anytime soon. It isn’t a track packed full of rainbows and fun, but ‘Y.A.N.O.’ is an affecting and memorable release that will make you feel, and question the way that things have teetered towards the precarious living situations that so many have found themselves in as of late.
