YJY was an American indie rock band that is from New Jersey.

History[edit]

YJY is a four-piece indie rock group from Hightstown, New Jersey, that in formed 2014. The name is a symbol, with the Y's as crying eyes, and the J as a nose.[1] They draw comparison to the music of Mac DeMarco, Real Estate, Wavves and Car Seat Headrest.[2] YJY's first release, the five-track EP Couch Surfin USA, was released with Sniffling Indie Kids, on 7 July 2015. It was recorded in two days at 1989 Recordings.[1] Described as "fuzz-indie pop laced with humor and emotion," it won the The Deli's Best of 2015 Open Submission Poll.[3] YJY contributed the song "Somebody Take My Phone" for the 2nd annual charity compilation 24 Hour Songwriting Challenge. Their second release, the four-track EP The Same Noise, was released on 19 August 2016. Jim Testa calls the EP "chimey indie pop that combines cocky, youthful vocals with reverb-y guitars and infectious melodies."[4] They performed at the 2016 North Jersey Indie Rock Festival.

The full-length album, entitled The Enduring YJY, was released on 17 June 2017. It was listed in Jersey Beat's 2017 Best Albums.[5] YJY played their final show at Asbury Park Music Foundation, with Avery and The Man Devils, Jeff Lane, Julian Fulton and the Zombie Gospel, and NGHTCRWLRS, on 17 June 2017.[6]
