Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah and one more… YEAH!
Theyâ€šÃ„Ã´re the high-school dance band you always wished would make it. The Yeah Yeah Yeahsâ€šÃ„Ã´ raw, garage sound and overtones of punk bleakness in notable release, Fever to Tell, is an indi sound straight out of Wichita, via Ohio and New York. The album is the perfect appetizer to any garage-gourmand with a hankering for a White Stripes entree and Strokes dessert.The hooks are minimalist, the drums are infectious, and Fever to Tell slides together in a sweet smelling, musically tight package that makes you wanna shake your beer to with little concern for whom you spill it on. Itâ€šÃ„Ã´s the perfect blend of the vogue garage-punk simplicity with complex to innocuous band poetry, recalling a golden age of â€šÃ„Ãºgirl comes firstâ€šÃ„Ã¹ music without the nuisances of femininity. Fever to Tell upholds the spirit of Joan Jett and New York art-rock gods, Blondie.
With any luck, Fever to Tell will kick up enough speed to keep the band proficient; the album leaves you anticipating more. The classic sound is perfect right now, but the precocious garage-punk trio seems to have the passion to push themselves beyond the shelf-life of this current trend. Notable tracks include bittersweet â€šÃ„ÃºModern Love Songâ€šÃ„Ã¹, and anthemic â€šÃ„ÃºGot a Date with the Nightâ€šÃ„Ã¹.
