It's been a few years now, since Arquettes have released their debut album 'Wave On'. And now, they're back! The new record 'Yiss, yiss' is everything you except from a spring time album, and more. The songs are written to play live, and the result is an energetic set, that occasionally sucker punches you. The poppy melodies might be hidden behind a wall of noise and shoegaze guitars, but we managed to reveal the catchy structures in this stripped down version.

The session takes place in Likebirds, a coworking space at the Tondeliersite in Rabot, Gent. This just to be an industrial site, but will be reclaimed as a brand new living environment. Right now it's a place where the habitants come together to garden and the kids play football. This feeling is translated in the raw industrial building and the playful decoration of Likebirds. The setting represents perfectly the songs of Arquettes.

Songs: 'I don't need it', 'Stay Around'
