The Yada Yada Yadas “Oceans”

While the Yadas bio mentions the influences of Pavement, Neutral Milk Hotel, and Flaming Lips, “Oceans”  has all the earmarks of the classic mid-western power pop sound, namely it’s melodic, hook-laden and features a big fat guitar line. It brings to mind the kind of thing so heartwarmingly served up over the years by Material Issue, and Cheap Trick, as well as easterners, the Gigolo Aunts. The Yadas hail from Durham, England so not sure if they’ve indulged in any of that stuff, but no matter, this thing can stand among the giants proudly.
