There are few better moments in checking out new rock music than when a band really nails that gritty, blues sound sans any real artifice. Brooklyn-based trio The YeahTones hit that sweet spot just right with their all killer, no filler stylings.
Recently, the band dropped their debut record, Eviction Notice, with Speak Into My Good Eye now happy to host the exclusive premiere of the video for single, “Believe.” In the video, The YeahTones drop an anvil of raw energy as they seek catharsis through sound.
The band’s Jake Pinto (guitar, vox) explains:
“I wrote ‘Believe’ over the summer a couple years back while sitting by a lake in Bucksport, Maine. It was one of those songs where the music and lyrics kind of flowed out very quickly and intuitively. It’s a frustrated song about the anxiety that can consume you when you start to lose faith in ideas, people, and things that you once believed in. The moment you realize that your teachers, doctors, politicians, managers, preachers etc are often just as clueless as you are can be so destabilizing to your general belief system and the song is about realizing that and ultimately accepting it to move on.
I think an unfortunately slim majority of Americans all experienced this on November 8th last year when we realized these polls we all believed in were a sham. The video was recorded by our good friend and phenomenal filmmaker Joseph Crawford on his rooftop in Bushwick. We were smack dab in the middle of our month long tour so I think there was a great chemistry happening during the shoot.”
Watch The YeahTones in “Believe” below and catch them at Irving Plaza on April 20th opening up for Lucky Chops (ticket link).
