It has been 6 years since we lost our minds to Yeasayer’s Odd Blood with singles “Madder Red” and “Ambling Alp” and 4 years since their last release Fragrant World. Today Brooklyn’s pop trio have announced Amen & Goodbye with their new single “I Am Chemistry.” Not just a track, but an incredible video featuring renowned sculptor David Altmejd portraying rebirth and a dance break that makes shoves Gumby off the map. While the group stays true to their disfigured and unconventional pop, Amen & Goodbye diverges from the heavy production sound and was instead recorded to tape at Outlier Inn Studio in upstate New York and handed to Joey Waronker (drummer – Atoms For Peace / Beck) for to complete the cycle of strange.
Bonus: Can’t get enough of the sculpting x music pairing? Turns out the inspiration is mutual and Altmejd visually interprets the upcoming album in these remarkable videos.
Slated for release on April 1, 2016 via Mute, you can pre-order Amen & Goodbye here. Tour dates coming soon!
