Yen – ‘Closer to Love’ (mp3)
Yen = Alternative Sydney Dance Pop… at its finest.
Playing around since 1996, these guys have slowly built a great reputation for their live shows with bands like The pHonies, Parades, and Entropic (who they share their drummer Robbie Mudrazija) to name a few. With this single ‘Closer to Love’, the boys have produced a killer tune – melodic, structured, yet just crazy enough to keep things interesting. Vocalist and Nord wiz Nick Cassey is one cool bearded cat, writing strong melodies that take the band into a far more accessible spectrum than most dance bands can reach. From the new demos I’ve heard, these guys have a few more tricks up their collective sleeves.
