Yuno has just announced his first-ever U.S. live performances supporting Twin Shadow, beginning April 20th in San Francisco at Popscene and ending May 2nd in Brooklyn, NY at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Like so:
Apr. 20 - San Francisco, CA - Popscene
Apr. 22 - Portland, OR - Mississippi Studios
Apr. 23 - Seattle, WA - The Crocodile Cafe
Apr. 27 - Washington, DC - U Street Music Hall
May 02 - Brooklyn, NY - Music Hall of Williamsburg
News of this support tour comes on the heels of Yuno’s Sub Pop signing and the release of his breakout single (and official video) for “No Going Back.” Yuno’s bittersweet vocals glide over a buoyant bass line and, fittingly, one of the song’s central themes is passing a point of no return. Yuno also both stars in and directs the “No Going Back” visual.
NPR Music calls “No Going Back” “an early entry into the race for song of the summer.” And Pitchfork gave the song “Best New Track’ status, and had this to say: “‘No Going Back” insists what we’re all thinking for the new pop wunderkind: Only forward.”

What people are saying about Yuno’s “No Going Back”:
“Yuno’s lithe voice floats amidst the cheerful soundscape, bouncing off the plucky piano keys… the brand of sunny pop displayed on ‘No Going Back’ should earn him his own cult fanbase.” - Impose
“It’s light and breezy indie-pop, with warm and bouncy synth-lines softly coloured over with warm piano melodies and guitar solos. His vocals – fitting beautifully into the current psychedelic renaissance spearheaded by the likes of Tame Impala and Washed Out – pour out an infectious melody that’s simultaneously great fun and inflected with melancholy.” - Indie Shuffle
“Bouncy and bright…” - Gorilla Vs. Bear.
“Charming us all with its buoyant pop flair and instrumentals that sound as if they were seemingly dipped in sunshine, “No Going Back” signals Yuno’s return in a way that’s almost impossible to shake. “No Going Back” is as promising as it is optimistic.” - The Grey Estates
“Drifting digital pop casting a bittersweet spell.” - CLASH
