YesYou – Frivolous Life (ft. Marcus Azon)
This was a bit of a surprise. I just got sent the new YesYou video clip so I checked it out and, upon playing it, I thought, “Hmm, those graffiti covered walls look familiar,” and “hey, is that my ex housemate?”. So, yeah, it turns out the clip was filmed IN MY OLD HOUSE!
The chance to see what a fucking cool building I used to live in is one reason to check out the above clip, as is the fact that the song is good too. YesYou are production duo Jono Kirkham and Gav Parry. You’ve probably heard their buoyant debut track Half Of It, which made ripples when it featured on the world wide internet machine throughout 2011. Recently they’ve been holed up in the studio writing and producing tracks with and for the likes of Jinja Safari and DZ Deathrays. Performing live as a four-piece, the band have supported Oscar & Martin, Electric Guest, Neon Indian and Ball Park Music. Frivolous Life (ft. Marcus Azon) is the first single off YesYou’s debut EP, due out in the coming months.
