Are you ready for eccentric music?
YEYO is a musical duet playing “neurotic pop”. Strong feminist vibes, bizarre storytelling, mix of electronic samples with live drums and vocal. Each live performance is honest and explosive. You can feel groove, extraordinary sound and charisma.
The band was formed in 2016 and participated in many Ukrainian Festivals. For 2 years we presented: EP "Freedom" (2016), LP "Cholovik-Muza" (2017), and three music videos "Javier", " Wake Up", "Cholovik-Muza".
In September 2018, the group visited the most prestigious festival in Scandinavia - Live at Heart, where they’ve received a lot of good feedback from European promoters and bookers. A month later, the band performed in Toronto at the Indie Week festival. In April 2019 YEYO had a few gigs in Poland and Germany.
The lyrics touch upon different aspects of a person’s social adjustment. A lot of songs are about men and women and their part in each other’s lives, interpersonal relations. The songs are in Ukrainian, Russian and English.
There are lots of references to the Ukrainian and world cultures. YEYO lyrics refer to nostalgic memories and a state of modern reality. A careful listener will hear feminist vibes and a rejection of an "odd" personality by society.
Press about us:
"It is one of the most original bands which appeared in Ukraine over the past years." — Vogue.ua
"They’re progressive, fashionable, and exciting, just like a re-emergent Kyiv, all while making some of the most interesting music videos you’ve yet to see!" — Post Pravda Magazine
"In the harsh feminist lyrics, she compares herself to soldier Jane and explains that you need to fight back against your offender. National distinctiveness doesn’t catch the eye as much as thorough changed perception of a vile post-Soviet reality. But it isn’t perceived as previously described hell, it is a point of personal growth and a battlefield". — Afisha.ru
"The trio from Kiev have played together only for several years, they are considered as a hope of Ukrainian music. The songs are in three languages, they have an unusual approach to the sound, their music is very beautiful and distinctive." —The Flow
