Single Review – Yeasayer – Gerson’s Whistle

One of Brooklyn’s more successful experimental acts in Yeasayer are to release their fourth studio album on April 1st with Amen and Goodbye. This latest single from the album opens with whirring vocals that slowly develop into vocal rounds and soon become an indelible track with sturdy rhythms and wiry melodies. The song peels back its various elements for more vocal rounds and from here new sounds are built up to a greater, expansive and anthemic interlude. The song continues to pull back the layers leaving you with acoustic sounds and a purposeful beat. The track shifts and changes a lot, but it retains a purpose throughout and is dynamic and varied.
