|Say Yes Dog - A Friend EP|
Release Date: 9th December 2013
There is potential for this EP to either break trio Say Yes Dog in to the big time or for it to be yet another collection of songs that I break out at house parties when I've had a few too many drinks to show people what fantastic music there is lurking just outside of the mainstream. The mix of Hot Chip, Transformer and Justice style Dicso Pop on 'Get It' is just sublime and the sexy keys that herald the start of 'Around My Neck' blends perfectly with the hand claps and Soulwax-esque vocals that are just too cool for school. Recent release 'A Friend' is still the stand-out track on here, blending Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem and latter day Eels in to a soup of bouncy keyboards, clicky beats and lyrics so cool they might have been written by James Dean, "Who needs a girl if you were born on the run?". 'Love You Back' is a beast of a tune that starts off with chilled Parisian accordion sounds before succumbing to a lounge beat that would have a gaggle of Hoxton hipsters nodding their heads with a passive-aggressive stare in the blink of an emotionless eye. Say Yes Dog should be huge and should feature on a number of trailers for cool Channel 4 programmes fairly soon if everything is as it should be. Sadly, that doesn't seem to be the case with the world right now...
