Out now: Yeasayer - Ambling Amp

Oh hi there, we're called Yeasayer and we're an experimental band from Brooklyn.

"Experimental" is usually music industry code for "unlistenable toss" or "plays a xylophone made of wasps", but that's not us at all. Our experiment has been constructed to determine whether, if you put some random static in the middle of the second verse, indie kids can be fooled into listening to an electro-pop record.

Okay, so that hypothesis has already been successfully tested by MGMT and Phoenix and Radiohead, and we're not introducing any new variables. So you could say we're reproducing the data in an effort to establish the standard deviation.

Nonetheless, this wheeze has given us unparalleled access to lab coats, safety goggles, magnesium strips, pipettes and - on one unforgettable day last June - a liebig condenser.

In the meantime, we have made a video for our single Ambling Alp, where we told lots of ladies they had to take their clothes off in the name of science - and they totally bought it!

Sadly, none of them let us "practice Biology" on them, no matter how many times we asked.
