Check ‘Em Out: YAWN – “Day Trip”

YAWNS

Listen: YAWN – “Day Trip”

Chicago psych-pop band YAWN will release its new Day Trip EP on August 21st via FeelTrip Records & Old Flame Records.

They’ve shared the title track, which Consequence of Sound calls “this year’s weirdest and most eccentric summer jam.” You can stream & share “Day Trip” — one of the band’s sunniest, most pop-leaning songs yet — via Soundcloud.

YAWN mixes off-kilter psychedelia with infectious pop hooks for a sound that’s simultaneously unconventional and accessible. The band’s own brand of electro-infused psych pop features buzzing guitars, warbling synth, and hazy, blissed-out melodies, and their energetic live show has landed them tours with bands like Tame Impala, The Kooks, Yuck, and Mates of State.

For another taste of the upcoming EP, you can stream the previously-released single “Overflow” and check out its accompanying video
