We Yes You No
Their noir-esque eccentric songs could be described as twisted and occasionally, beautifully angular. A set of heartfelt melodies paired with some punchy riffs that tend to be put on the back burner in favour of the electronics. Think Coldplay vocals meets video game sound effects and you’ve got the chilled out vibe that these guys articulate.
Introducing their weird electronic style, reminiscent of old Sonic the Hedgehog games, ‘Must Destroy’ seems to be a play-off between the talent in the band, which gives the impression that they can’t quite decide what they are. Drums and guitars say rock but vocals and electronics seem to sway towards melodic dance.
Further in, the record hints at specs of dark charisma lurking in the bands shadowy underbelly. The vocals prevail as the singer never fails to hold a note. The record then takes an intense turn and becomes almost cosmic in its scope of dense music and electric sounds.
This leads well into their next turn with the harmonious, but somewhat dismal, ‘End of History’. A vocalist that hangs on to his words for dear life creates dramatic, drawn out lyrics in a calculating and depressing way, leaving you fearing for his life. No sooner said, though, they pick up the pace with some cocky lyrics and simply constructed vocals. The tempo creeps up until the end of each line, taking the edge off those often prominent electronics.
Definitely a record that boasts great dimension and a band you’d be stupid not to keep your eye on.
