Only Yours - Different

1.    Who are these bearded bros? 

Only Yours are an indie post pop band from Toronto, Canada. Different (June'16) is their debut single. 

2. What have they got to offer?

Different isn't. It's all the retro sounds of eighties pop with a vague indie bent circa 2000's. That's what makes it so good. It's like the musical equivalent of candy floss. You don't feel good about loving it, you know that shit ain't good for you, but you want it bad.

3. Who do Only Yours sound like? 

Kings of Leon. SHIELDS. Passion Pit. 

4. What have the goon squad said about Different?

“Bouncing bass synth drives this nostalgic summer anthem” – Indie 88.

“All hooks, a bold chorus and a glistening verse” – Clash Music. 

“Lush contemporary electro-pop textures meet in the middle with new-wave rhythms” – Dusty Organ. 

5. Which band have put the syrup in Only Yours?

Only Yours are influenced by The Cure, Tears For Fears, Beyonce, Rihanna and Drake. 

6. Why should I give Different a play?

The chorus is as clingy as a girlfriend meeting your better looking ex at a party. Tight.

7. Do Only Yours have any other good tunes? 

Debut single, mind. 

8. Any more words peanut? 

Different was produced by Leon Taheny who has put his nose to the grind for Weaves, Death From Above 1979, Tokyo Police Club and Metz to name but a few.

“The city looks soft through rosy glass,
The night feels young but it moves so fast”

Emigrate are an alternative hard rock band from New York, New York. They were formed in 2007 and have two albums behind them. The bands front man Richard Z Kruspe is a guitarist in Rammstein. The bands second album Silent So Long (2014) included collaborations with a variety of artists (Lemmy, Marilyn Manson, Peaches) but in particular the lead single on the album Eat You Alive featured Frank Delle from the German dancehall band Seeed. Eat You Alive is a hard charging rock song with hints of punk, bombast and sex.

“Getting it deeper than hell in a hole”
