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.Their debut self-titled record, ‘YEEVS’, 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 their material. The result has a startling clarity within gritty indie rock, as can be seen in the singles ‘Moving Magnets’ and ‘Can’t Be Seen’.
The band have been hard at work during the COVID-19 pandemic, using this time to focus on the next phase of their music, adopting new approaches to writing, creating and performing.
