Play of the Week: Yeasayer

By  September 12, 2012

A big hell yeah this week for Yeasayer….

This week we’ve been easing our post summer blues with the latest offering from New York psychedelic pop trio Yeasayer. ‘Reagan’s skeleton’ is the latest single to be released from the bands acclaimed album ‘Fragrant World’ and is aptly due for release on the 22nd October – the US presidential elections take place shortly after.

Already the favourite of Radio One DJ’s Zane Lowe and Nick Grimshaw, ‘Reagan’s skeleton’ has all the trappings of a sure fire dancefloor filler, a mixture of 80′s synth, electronic beats and haunting vocals.

Yeasayer - New single 'Reagans Skeleton'

New single 'Reagans Skeleton' released 22/10/12

Branding their own unique sound as ‘Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel’ Yeasayer’s album is a testament to their individuality and fearlessness when it comes to expanding their musical boundaries.

After listening to Yeasayer I think my favourite quote that sums them up quite perfectly is as follows – “If Radiohead had fun, they might sound like this”. So if that sounds like your kind of thing make sure you check them out on their European tour this September.
