Say Yes Dog

We have all witnessed many a supposed next big thing vanish into oblivion. But with Aaron, Pascal and Paul, matters are different; there is substance.

Their debut- EP ‘A Friend’ (2013) sold a couple of thousands copies and the eponymous title track become a digital hit generating nearly a million clicks. Since then, Say Yes Dog have played more than a hundred shows, appearing everywhere from clubs in Paris and London to Europe’s renowned showcase festivals (Reeperbahnfestival/DE, Eurosonic/NL, The Great Escape/UK). They have supported Junip on the European leg of their tour and have been booked two years in a row for Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona.

This entire buzz because of a meagre EP? Here’s what Say Yes Dog have to say: “It was rather amusing to see how far we got with only these four songs…It was like we were bluffing and sometimes we felt like we were about to be found out and would have to go home and start being a proper band. Somehow we’re still waiting.”

The trio are now embarking on the next steps – a major one being the release of their debut album “Plastic Love” recorded by Ash Workman known for his collaboration with Metronomy amongst others. An influence with audible consequences for the band’s sound: Expect enticing electronic pop filled to the brim with clever hooks, funky basslines and some melancholic touches.

“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive, because your words become your behaviours. Keep your behaviours positive, because your behaviours become your habits. Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.” ~Gandhi
