Yellow Ostrich – “Shades”

Yellow Ostrich – “Shades”

We last heard from Yellow Ostrich last fall when the Wisconsin combo released 2012’s best Ghost EP not by Sky Ferreira. They’ll be back with their next Barsuk full-length Cosmos in February, and from the sound of lead single “Shades,” they’ve pumped up the volume this time. Out with the splendidly spare, R&B-inflected “Ghost” sound; in with the loud guitars and groovy bass. “Shades” is a new millennial psych-rocker worthy of Tame Impala or Temples, but it also reflects Radiohead and Coldplay if you gaze upon it from the right angle. I trust you won’t regret pressing play below.

Cosmos is out 2/25/14 via Barsuk.
