When we last talked to synth-y, self-sufficient indie artist Yuno, he’d just inked a deal with unimpeachably cool Seattle label Sub Pop. The reclusive Jacksonville resident was also tight lipped about a release date for his debut album (“who knows, we’ll just have to see”) and was mum on his plans for a homecoming show (“I’m not sure, but hopefully sometime soon”).
While Yuno was certainly playing coy with us, we can’t stay mad at him! After all, we recently learned that everything is set for a June 15 release of the hometown hero’s Sub Pop debut “Moodie.” What’s more, Yuno announced a new slate of late-summer early fall tour dates in support of equally as synth-y, Indie Pop artists Superorganism, as well as a run of headlining gigs, including (hooray!) an August 18 homecoming show at San Marco’s Jackrabbits.
To celebrate his tour/album announcement, Yuno also released “Fall in Love,” a laid-back, somewhat somber cut from the upcoming “Moodie” with a video featuring the artist dourly staring into the camera as the image (for those who remember VCRs) seems to be struggling through some tracking issues .
