Heavy Date for Florence's Twilight SingleOn November 15th Florence + the Machine will release the single "Heavy In Your Arms."

The track is a highlight of both this year's festival season and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, the third installment of The Twilight Saga film series.

On the official website of Florence + the Machine, singer Florence Welch says, “'Heavy In Your Arms' I suppose is about the weight of love, and how sometimes it can be a burden between two people. I felt this was a strong theme in the Twilight series, is someone being rescued or are they being condemned? And is the love you carry bringing you down."

She continues, "I recorded it with Paul [Epworth] one evening, using a lot of strange reversed vocal samples and big hip hop piano. It's basically inspired by 90's hip hop, and gospel choirs, like most of my songs.”

Offensive? No. Likely to invoke expressions of disgust or to face immediate rejection? Probably not judging by the positive response this group's music has attracted on the web. Its name is a misnomer. The band Yuck (sometimes written "Yu(c)k") is "all the rage" in North London, England and its fashionable songs circulating on the web are only garnering love and praise.

"Don't pay any attention to their name – these north London newbies are not yuck at all, they're pretty good, sounding like a shoegazey Sonic Youth," Paul Lester wrote for the Guardian when he made Yuck his "new band of the day" in January.

"YUCK’s music is beguilingly interior, evoking inner monologues and sideways glances through eyelashes framed by burning cheeks. Vocals weave through a haze of reverb and feedback arches through frisson-filled dusky melodies," Ruth Saxelby wrote for Dummy.

Yuck is a London-based band with international roots that has been together for just over a year. The band has signed to Fat Possum Records and will release its debut album early in 2011. The record will be released in Europe by The Pharmacy Recording Company. UK single "Rubber" was released earlier this month, and the band will release “Georgia” backed with “The Base of a Dream is Empty” in the US through Fat Possum Records on November 23.
