HEAR THIS: Emperor Yes
What do you get when you mix producer Ash Gardner (Mumford & Sons, We Are Scientists), Hugo Sheppard and Three Trapped Tigers’ Adam Betts? You get the electro-pop sounds of Emperor Yes. On their latest single, “Cosmos,” the anthemic chorus, huge synth sounds and infectious melodies work together perfectly to wrap you in their curiosity about what else might exist in our universe. It’s not difficult to hear why Emperor Yes has been compared to the Flaming Lips, M83 and Daft Punk – their influences come through clearly. Add in a crazy fun video where the band is dressed as yetis (yes, abominable snowmen) and you know you just have to check them out.
