Yeevs are a band out of the Blue Mountains via Sydney who don’t just play music- they wring catharsis out of their instruments with a deep and instinctual need that 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.
Crafted during the formative period for the band, six tracks made it through the grueling year-long songwriting process to form their 2015 debut release, How To Harken Back. Released independently and to rave reviews from FBi Radio, I OH YOU, The Brag, Musicfeeds, the EP also resulted in them being hailed by Hhhhappy as “One of Australia’s finest young bands.”
In amongst this intensive touring schedule, they also produced two film clips, the first of which- ‘Cycle As The Deal Goes Down’- has been brandished as “a tour de force of rock n roll.” – Ryan Saar, Soundly Sounds.
As a natural progression, the band followed their much praised release with a slew of headline shows- as well as notable support slots in 2016 with Jeremy Neale, AUSTRALIA as well as musical brethren and long time personal friends Spookyland for their Sydney and Melbourne album tour dates, which included a sold out Newtown Social Club.
YEEVS are not a band to rest on previous successes- they are already back in the studio after a week long writing intensive at a friends farm, sifting through hours of material to craft what is sure to be a remarkable follow up EP, no doubt full of songs that are already gaining momentum with their fevered crowds. As “a band that will no doubt be playing larger rooms very soon”- Ciao Magazine, their incredible live show is only going to get bigger and better. In short “Yeevs have a quiet urgency about them; there’s a sense that something special is going on here that can only keep growing and thriving. 4/5 stars”- The Brag
