“They haven't abandoned their eclecticism – the influences from house to folk to samba whiz past – but they have learnt how to tether it to brilliant songs” The Guardian
“otherworldly pop music to make the head spin’ Q
“Wilfully odd, beautifully hypnotic and with a wonderful lightness of touch” Mojo
“undulating pop masterpiece… thrillingly inventive, brilliantly ambitious, a monumental return” The Fly
“Our latest musical obsession, Packed full of indie-pop gems” Grazia
“[ODD BLOOD has] already set and ingenious marker for 2010” Loud & Quiet
“Onstage, the band manage to create a space in which their music’c audacious leaps of faith feel not just logical but wholly necessary.” Sunday Telegraph
YEASAYER have confirmed the release of the second single, ‘O.N.E.’ on 29th March to be taken from the band’s second album, ODD BLOOD (out now on MUTE).
The single will feature the original album version as well as the XXXchange remix, the unassembled and starkly endearing demo (exclusive to this release) and Instrumental versions of the song. ‘O.N.E.’ is accompanied by another rather fabulous futuristic video - directed once again by Radical Friend (aka Kirby McClure and Julia Grigorian) who created the mind-melting ‘Ambling Alp’. The post-apocalyptic setting of LA’s surrounding industrial wasteland provided the inspiration needed to helm Yeasayer’s provocative performance. The gameboard is based on actual mystical charts and diagrams that represent the psychological warfare these otherworldly club kids engage in.
