Yi have debuted their new video for Not Dead Yet. You can watch it via YouTube below.
The band released their debut ‘EP1’ earlier this year via Hand Drawn Dracula. Order it here.
Yi was formed in the winter of 2015 by Jordan Allen (Rolemodel) and Jesse Crowe (Beliefs) following their writing collaboration on the track Until for the Jordan’s ‘Rolemodel’ EP. The pair quickly accumulated enough material for two partnered EPs (coming soon via Hand Drawn Dracula). ‘EP1’ features Yi’s first single, Not So Dead, which draws influences from Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr., while ‘EP2’ draws influences from Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps and Blur.
Yi’s live band evolved in 2016 with the addition of Luke Duross, Patrick McCormack (founding member of Beliefs), and Braeden Craig (Greys), and have thus far been building a home audience in Toronto before embarking towards future festivals and far away cities.
