What could be better than a high octane pop song sculpted on a punk bred guitar clang, devilishly anthemic rhythms, and a spicy dose of discord to make your toes curl? On the evidence of No No No, the new single from UK quintet Yes Sunshine not a lot. The song is a virulent stomp, an insatiable temptation which has feet as quickly alert and active as ears. There is a buzz brewing up around the Coventry hailing band and right now easy to see why thanks to No No No.
Yes Sunshine began back in the spring of 2013, Michael McCann, Mark Fazakarley, Jord Harrold, Declan McCann, and Chris Feltwell musically uniting to commemorate the passing of a close friend. They were soon hitting and enlivening the local live scene before spreading their sound and performances just as quickly across the UK and Ireland. Their first year alone saw the band playing venues such as The Dublin Castle, The Shed, and a headline show at The 100 Club as well as an appearance at Manchester’s Ethihad Stadium and two packed out shows at The Great Escape Festival. Yes Sunshine has supported the likes of with Pete Doherty, Royal Blood, Zane Lowe, Yuck, The Enemy, and The View along the way too whilst their debut single in 2014 courted the attention of BBC Radio 1, XFM, and Amazing Radio amongst many. The beginning of this year saw the successful release of the single Because of You, a fiery marker for the band which No No No has taken to another level.
The band’s sound is a volatile weave of indie, rock, and punk honed into one rebellious pop roar, and swiftly infecting ears as No No No opens with a jangle of guitar chords before flicking the switch to an agitated, tenaciously lively stroll. The vocals are just as energised and infectious as they jump into the revelry whilst a thick juicy bassline invigorates the already rampant tempting on offer further. It is the discord soaked enterprise of the guitars which is the most compelling component in the song though, acidic noise oozing from every note whilst conjuring a pop romp to get nothing less than fully involved with. Early Strokes has been suggested as a comparison to the band’s sound, we say though add some Asylums and eighties band Fire Engines and you get a bigger hint of No No No.
People are claiming big things for Yes Sunshine and after No No No you will get little disagreement here.
