O.N.E. Love

So the new Yeasayer has arrived - in impersonal MP3 form at least, upon pre-order of the LP - and the good folks are offering the next single O.N.E. for free (via the widget below). 


Having offered another freebie late last year for the first cut, Ambling Alp, one has to doff a cap to the band's approach. Have confidence in your music, get it out there and get people hooked...... 

Having come to terms with the surreal, upbeat electronic pomp of Ambling,  it comes as less of a shock to the system that O.N.E. continues to telegraph Yeasayer's move into synth-heavy territory. Heavy on the throwback value, it's a bright track that gives off a real Cut Copy vibe, as viewed through a lens of their more psychedelic Brooklyn brethren. It certainly advances the distance between the more restrained folk of debut All Hour Cymbals and what Odd Blood offers up.

MP3: Yeasayer - 2080 (via Insound)
Taken from the pretty darn great debut All Hour Cymbals

Buy it at Insound!

Having checked out both new songs, are you feeling the new direction? 

Is this a bold step fuelled by artistic expression or simply a band settling into the comfortable sound of their surroundings? 

Love to hear your comments/thoughts on this one........
