Big Deal: Say Yes
Say Yes, the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's acclaimed June Gloom arrives on June 10th via the band's new home, FatCat Records. The record is a meteoric, towering return perfectly indicative of how Say Yes ups the band's stakes in every way.
Typically confessional, it's hard not to connect with the raw honesty of the lyrics on Say Yes. Sonically the record still sounds very much like Big Deal, but it evidences a certain newfound confidence. "We've done everything backwards," the pair explains. "Most bands spend a few years figuring themselves out before releasing a record. We released a record and then have spent a few years finding ourselves."
Say Yes is arguably the most open and emotionally provocative of all their works. "We've always been pretty private about our relationship within the band, but feel more comfortable talking about it for this record, as it's pivotal in the placement of our career." they explain. "It's about taking all kinds of heartbreak and defeat, and just looking at it dead in the eye and going for it."
