YEEVS - Late Show
Combining lo fi punk, new-wave power pop and emotional storytelling, Bradley Cork, Sean Lees and Tom Bamford came together from different genre backgrounds and bonded over a mutual love of music and creating to fuse these elements into their own music; interlocking energetically and sonically to create something whole and real.
Last year saw the release of their debut self-titled record, ‘YEEVS’, their most accomplished and inspired recording yet. With the aim of capturing the spirit of their live show, the band set out to record the album on an isolated farm in Wiseman’s Ferry in regional NSW. With producer Dan Holdsworth, the band were challenged to try new and complex arrangements, strengthening and further energising their material. The result has a startling clarity within gritty indie rock, as can be seen in the singles ‘Moving Magnets’ and ‘Can’t Be Seen’.
The band have been hard at work during the COVID-19 pandemic, using this time to focus on the next phase of their music, adopting new approaches to writing, creating and performing.
“The songwriting is seriously something. I love how angry it feels near the end. Big heart eyes for this.”
Triple J Unearthed, Claire Mooney (‘Moving Magnets’)
“this one surges and rises in such a brilliant way and as usual Bradley's vocals are captivating and bold.”
Triple J, Declan Byrne (‘Can’t Be Seen’)
“...it manages to set up camp in the thin line that lies somewhere between anguish and joy, capturing the best of both worlds whilst the band continue their ascent.”
Little Indie Blogs (Bellow Of Cheer EP)
“...an assortment of soaring indie gems littered with anthemic vocals and a sprinkling of punk vibes, making for a uniquely impressive debut.”
