Yeasayer (pronounced “yaysayer”) is a band based in Brooklyn, New York. The band was formed in 2006 and consists of three core members, Chris Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton, and Anand Wilder.
Yeasayer described their music as “middle eastern-psych-snap-gospel”. Live performances often include psychedelic visuals.
Yeasayer released their second studio album "Odd Blood" in 2010, featuring more pop music influences than earlier work. The band revealed that the album came out of a trip to New Zealand.
Peter Gabriel’s drummer Jerry Marotta helped to record Odd Blood in an upstate New York studio packed with rare synths and percussion instruments from around the globe to create the characteristic worldbeat sound of the album.
