The closing number Mysterion, finds The Yetis combining retro-rock and psychedelic shoe-gaze with garage fuzziness to deliver a track that the mind can laze around with, in wraps of warming towels.

Since being first introduced back in May of last year, The Yetis have honed their craft further and Mysterion explores a more considered level of composition which affords the quartet a higher platform from which to gain traction as they deliver a piece with variety of texture and despite only being just over two and a half minutes long, gives the audience a sense of suspended time.

The Yetis - Garage rock from The USA

The Yetis

I had to check my geography on listening to The Yetis and I was pleased to see that I hadn’t lost the plot and Pennsylvania really is where I thought it was – a land locked North Eastern State of The USA, not balmy California beaches of the South West. By that you will know there is a summery cheerfulness to the out-put.


I personally enjoy surfy garage rock for many reasons, not least being the extended drawing out of vowels which is typical of the genre and The Yetis are deft exponents, which gives the music an immediate sense of calm fluidity. Although having been around a while with an extensive back-catalogue of music that isn’t all beaches and sunshine, the members are still students and bereft of funding, so releases are scarce. There are a few tracks they have recorded themselves to take a listen to, however,  I do hope that when there are a few more pennies in the pockets they don’t move away from the current recorded sound that has such warmth to it because of its very low production cost.

I look forward to hearing much more of The Yetis and wish them every success in the topsy turvy world of being  musicians.
