I’m literally loving the sound of The Yada Yada Yadas. Influenced by bands such as Pavement, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Flaming Lips, and others, they have “mastered the craft of writing beautifully silly pop songs, and burying them deep beneath piles of dirt, feedback and uncompromisingly creamy fuzz”. Based out of County Durham, England, these guys are for fans of Wavves, Yuck and Dinosaur Jr.
Oceans is a glimpse of their 4 track debut EP, Way…No Way, recorded at Blast Recording Studios. The visuals in the video lend the perfect aesthetic, connecting sight and sound, while leaving room for personal interpretation. There is tons of positive buzz about their work with recognition from Alternative Press, Crack Magazine, BBC Radio 6 and quite a few more. The Yada Yada Yadas have created some magic and are rightfully claiming their spot amid bands on the rise and their spot just might be at the top.
The Yada Yada Yadas drew inspiration for their name from the 90’s sitcom Seinfeld. Lead vocalist, Mark, had this to say about their favorite show: “The growing alternative culture of the 1990’s is epitomised within the sitcoms of the era. The coffee house generation beamed themselves onto our British screens revealing an all new American dream, free from taboo, and more relatable than ever before. Though times have changed, Seinfeld still acts as a sub 30 minute blast of escapism, with its powerful and lasting influence still being seen today in shows like ‘It’s always sunny in Philadelphia’ (and of course within my own bands name). It’s a form of mediation, allowing me to turn off my brain as the show (and others of it’s kind) will hold my hand through the whole experience, gently reminding me when to laugh as I stare zombified at my television set. Perhaps a marathon is in order this coming Festivus. Also, this is one of the few instances in which slap bass is socially acceptable.” ~MARK
