Bio

YEEVS are a band out of the Blue Mountains via Sydney who don’t just play music- they wring catharsis out of their instruments and will make you feel the dissonance as much as hear it.

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.

This year sees the release of their debut self-titled record, 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 the material they had worked on throughout 2018. The result is a startling clarity to be found within gritty indie rock, as can be seen in the striking lead single, ‘Moving Magnets’.

The latest single ‘Can’t Be Seen’ showcases the band as an empowering and driving force, with melodic guitars and distinguished vocals aplenty. The upcoming video shows a more light-hearted side of the band. Here, they counter the song’s weightier subject matter of dependence and acceptance, to soundtrack a band audition gone wrong.

Taking ‘Can’t Be Seen’ and YEEVS out on the road this September, YEEVS are brandishing a live show that has come together smoothly over the last year. Their group dynamic currently at its creative best, YEEVS are ready to introduce their much-anticipated album to fans along the east coast and beyond.

PRAISE

“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’)

“I can’t get enough of Yeevs. To say you wear your heart on your sleeve doesn’t do justice to the honest, raw, searing passion that each release exudes.”
Triple J, Declan Byrne (‘Clatter & Green’)

“...an assortment of soaring indie gems littered with anthemic vocals and a sprinkling of punk vibes, making for a uniquely impressive debut.”
MusicFeeds (How To Harken Back EP)

“...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)

Good to see YEEVS still kicking. When this one puts its foot down, it really goes.
