Jacksonville’s Yuno will release Moodie, his first-ever collection of songs, worldwide through Sub Pop on June 15th, 2018. The six-song effort features breakout single “No Going Back” along with standouts “Fall In Love” and today’s latest offering, the official video for “Why For.” Moodie was written, performed, and produced by Yuno.
Yuno, who directed “Why For,” had this to say, “The video is kind of a visual representation of what I felt while creating the song. A collage of memories, drifting through different moods and trying to figure out a way to make it all make sense.”

Yuno’s “No Going Back” was released to rave reviews earlier this year. NPR Music called it an early entry into the race for song of the summer.” 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.” And Pigeons and Planes calls it “a masterfully written song, but instead of being polished to a bore, it feels handmade, with a fuzzy guitar solo, meaty bass, and a euphoric bounce.”

More of what “The People” have to say about Yuno:
“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 overck 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
