Guitars that evoke both David Grubbs and Velvet Underground, woven over a synthetic patchwork of vintage keyboards and set off by intense drums with patterns pulled right from the 70s: this might be the recipe of the magical potion called Yeti Lane, concocted by Ben, LoAc and Charlie, all members of the group Cyann & Ben.
A new adventure began when the three musicians strayed from the ethereal atmospheres and lyrical flights dear to Cyann & Ben to embrace a more direct and rhythmic indie rock. They entered a new playing field with a wider range of influences that effortlessly meld pop melodies and tribal beats, krautrock synthesizers and hypnotic guitars.
The trio quickly began composing and recording new tracks in its own studio, created especially for the occasion to capture this new expressive energy.
The composition is exquisitely precise. Instead of snubbing the pop format, Yeti Lane plays with it: taking it to a new space and adding a dose of epic rock and savvy arrangements.
The sound, rooted in the rock tradition, also takes up a clever do-it-yourself approach, hovering between vintage and modernity.
In line with a certain New York scene, Yeti Lane unveils modern psychedelics that voluntarily recall Syd Barrett, Kraftwerk and The Flaming Lips. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
