Indie group The Great Emu War Casualties Give Us A Little Taste From Their Upcoming EP ‘Vanity Project’ With New Single ‘I’m A Yes Man‘
The new single ‘I’m A Yes Man’ tantalises the senses with bright, luscious guitar riffs and licks; minimalistic keys; rubbery, punctuated basslines; and a dynamic, punchy groove on the kit.
After an instrumental opening of the rushing chorus, Joe Jackson, with his inviting accent and forbearing vocal delivery, clinches the track with an occupying melody. The rhythmic melody lines of the verses are backed up by a dynamically building band where the guitar autonomously sweeps and lets funk-like vibes fly. The verses then burst out in the captivating chorus where Jackson is backed up on the vocals.
Off the back of a crippling year for the entire world, this relatable track explores the overwhelming feeling of discomfort and unrest while being required to push on and help others.
Jackson shares about the track background: “It’s not about anything particularly tangible and it can (and should) be interpreted in whatever way you relate to it. I would say it’s about malaise, it’s about not feeling quite there, being disillusioned and restless. It’s basically about navigating adulthood in the 21st century – but pretty much all our songs are about that!“
‘I’m A Yes Man’ will be followed by the release of the ‘Vanity Project’ EP, out Friday, February 26.
