Yeah But No release “Run Run Run”.
Berlin-based electro/Pop duo Yeah But No announce the release of “Run Run Run”, the next single taken from the band’s sophomore album “Demons“. The song is accompanied by a playful, associative video by director Lukasz Pytlik (lately: Dead Can Dance, Liimo,…) Dealing with inner and outer conflicts and contrarieties, “Demons” is a slightly darker and more mature piece of music than the bands previous releases. Following the nervours, rhythmically driven “Caught Between Stations”, and the Wave-ish “I Don’t Want To Know”, this new track concentrates on a steady flow in a dark mood. “Run Run Run” tells about secrets, that unsolvably stand in so’s way, so escaping seems to be the only solution.
Yeah But No is comprised Douglas Greed and Fabian Kuss. Merging electronic music with classic song structures into a smart and captivating listening enjoyment is the band’s objective ever since they started collaborating. They released their self-titled debut album in fall 2017, followed by extensive touring, and accompanied by a couple of carefully curated remix EPs containing contributions by friends made along the way, and artists Yeah But No became friends and fans of. The likes of Daniel Brandt, Karmon, Marc Holstege and many others delivered stunning interpretations of Yeah But No’s music, expanding the band’s wide range from elegant deep house to fiddly electronica to hypnotic techno and great pop music.
The beauty of transition. The project of Berlin based musicians Douglas Greed and Fabian Kuss, that has grown into a band, tracks down the heaviness of breach and ending in rainy Electronica. It celebrates the energy within every change and the beauty of a new start. With smart compositions the duo airily maps the melancholy hidden in synths and drum machines. Greed and Kuss get to know each other four years ago when the former was looking for a singer for new tracks. The tasteful success label Freude am Tanzen is releasing Greed’s music at that time. He’s touring through Europe, plays in Mexico and Australia. Also, with Mooryc he’s releasing an album with the mutual project Eating Snow. After one hundred gigs in national and international clubs and on festivals as well as the release of a dozen of tracks together – among others on BPitch Control, Noir and Cocoon Records – both decide to split the artistic responsibility and start writing tracks jointly.
In doing so, though, Greed and Kuss draw their energy from fundamentally different approaches. Greed describes himself as an autodidact, likes things to be decided by accident or mistakes. Kuss studied voice, has tried out every musical style imaginable in various bands and projects from jazz to funk or pop and let’s the outsider’s view affect this project. Between these poles they merge electronic music with classic song structures into a smart and captivating listening enjoyment and continue writing their greatest hits of never arriving. Always a hard ending, always a hopeful beginning.
