NEW VIDEO BY YEALLOW
The Yeallow guys got together in Strasbourg (France) in 2010.From the beginning, the adventure of these four accomplices with an unusual path, is built around a story of strong friendship where the vital need to make music is the common denominator. Rich and with very different influences, combining jazz, blues, alternative rock and thrash metal paths, the quartet defined its own identity with a very modern sound and catchy riffs of power rock. An personal tone of voice, a guitar drenched in testosterone, an uncompromising bass and drums, the french electro-touch just at the right place.

“HATE TO SEE YOU GO” BY THE MANTLES
What makes the Mantles the Mantles? Maybe it’s the idiosyncratic motion and energy of Michael Olivares’ vocals, the way they alternately stroll and hop assuredly over the music. Or maybe it’s the band’s sound itself, familiar and classic yet increasingly distinctive, and growing-with acoustic texture; keyboard hooks and licks; and resonant and representative drumbeats-to its deepest, warmest, fullest, and most colorful on their third album, All Odds End (out October 16th on Slumberland Records), a record that is quintessentially Mantles from the sheer sonic splendor and elation-and biting words-of the album-opening “Island” on through to the final harmony of “Stay.”
