At a time when content is a constant gushing river, only the truest and purest art will find a way to float to the surface. The kind of art that is undeniably emotional, ingenious in its execution and endlessly energetic in its existence. The kind of art that is loud in its motivation and subtle in its truths. The kind of art Yes We Mystic create. With their new album “Ten Seated Figures” Yes We Mystic succeeded in exceeding their previous excess, creating something bigger than anything they’ve done before. Voices and instruments blend together, creating a swath of sound so dense and so complex that its origin can’t be placed. Now the band are bringing their unique musical offering to the UK in May 2019 for a series of tour and festival dates.
“Ten Seated Figures” embraces the unfamiliar. The sonic landscape is brimming with sounds that are unidentifiable, but still created with the same instruments Yes We Mystic has always used. This ties into the theme of the record as a whole; the ten tracks discuss the ways in which our misrememberings, misunderstandings and the little lies we all tell ourselves shape who we are and how we interact with the world. “It’s about memory, it’s about false memory and different ways in which we can remember the same event, see the same event, distort the same event in our mind and how it can change who we are. That’s what the album is about lyrically, and how it was made sonically as well; we tried to cloud the origins of what you’re hearing in the instruments,” says vocalist and guitarist Adam Fuhr.
“Ten Seated Figures” is the culmination of a months-long creative burst; one that embraces the band’s designation as “art-pop transformers” but also turns things on their head; one that holds surprises for listeners and will make them question much of what they see and hear; one that has produced Yes We Mystic’s very best work to date. And now, finally, UK fans will have the chance to hear this exceptional work of art played live in venues and festivals up and down the country.
