Brooklyn’s Yeasayer are one of those success stories you don’t even notice happening – you just glance around one day and That Little Band Who Could are everywhere, filling up column inches with I-saw-them-first excitement and whirling around the word-of-mouth circuit like a dervish. From first capturing the public attention at SXSW 2007 to featuring on Bat For Lashes’ 2009 masterpiece ‘Two Suns’ to becoming the most blogged-about artist of 2010, their self-described brand of “Middle Eastern-psych-snap-gospel” has only gone from strength to strength.
Now? Well, now it’s only going to get stronger. In August Yeasayer will be unleashing their third album ‘Fragrant World’, which is all set to prove a magnificent successor to their last effort (2010’s ‘Odd Blood’, which featured on several end-of-year lists and which really should be in your music collection by now). While August may seem like an eternity to wait for new material, here’s something to tide you over in the meantime …
… it’s their new single ‘Longevity’, available to download as of today. Check it out below, along the great accompanying video from artist Yoshi Sodoeka. Enjoy.
