After a handful of singles and the recent release of their self-titled EP, dreampop duo The Yets are back to ring in spring with us, sharing their latest audio-visual offering. Titled ‘Fades To Gray’ (not to be confused with the Visage hit ‘Fade To Gray’) their latest slice of rich texture and delight, released via South Carolina indie imprint Royal Terns Records.

Highlighted by the gorgeous Cocteau Twins-inspired ‘Letter To A Boy’ and earlier singles ‘Remember’ and ‘Lesser Evil’, this six-track debut offering indie pop sensation and sonic temptation with a fresh, but seemingly familiar, adult alternative vibe.

And who are The Yets you may be asking. The duo is the creative union of Robin Wilson on vocals and guitarist-producer Craig Anderson Snook, who met when Robin returned to her home state after some years in Georgia.

“Our debut EP is basically a snapshot of life … ups, downs, ins, outs, happy, sad and everything in between. ‘Fades to Gray’ is simply about the beauty and frailty of life, metaphorically colored and fading.  It’s lyrically full of references; in color and motion.  Take for example the phrase “A picture painted thin”, which points to the delicate balance of life which erodes with time as paint from a canvas and ultimately fades to gray,” says Robin Wilson.

Craig Anderson Snook adds, “We hope the video adds depth and perspective to the message of the song. Life is precious, fragile, and short … the soul is universal, strong and eternal. We’re already working on the next album … can’t wait to see you there!”

Based in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, their music combines elements of ethereal pop and popular rock classics with a sound embracing Fleetwood Mac and Cocteau Twins in equal measure. Breeding and bearing a distinct Americana lining, this EP is an emotively cast and atmospherically delightful proposition.

‘The Yets’ EP is out now, streamable via Spotify and available to order, digitally or on CD, directly from the band via Bandcamp.
