Yeah But No

FRESH: ‘Run Run Run’ – Yeah But No

Yeah But No release “Run Run Run”.

by Christopher Smith

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.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
