Since our interview last month, and the release of his yawning synth-pop EP Babes, Holland’s answer to R. Stevie Moore, Yuko Yuko, has been doing pretty well in the one-off single game. First, there was the World Cup-inspired track, Holland Vs. Mexico, and now, the sweeter-sounding tune, When I Cry, I’ll Smile, which Yuko Yuko says is “a request song for Daniel’s girlfriend.”
It’s a wide-eyed dream-folk track with co-ed vocals and smirky lyrics like, “I would have been mad/If I could not adore/Your Skrillex haircut, hun.” I’m not sure how Daniel’s girlfriend feels about all this, but it sounds pretty good to me. Listen below.
