Yoko and The Oh No’s share first single from upcoming LP

Yoko & the Oh No's press shots

Yoko & the Oh No’s are three kids from Chicago – Max Goldstein on vocals, Max Loebman on guitar, and Stef Roti on drums – a trio fueled by Taco Bell, rock & roll myths, and pilfered booze. The band’s self-titled full-length debut, which will be out on Oct. 30th via Autumn Tone, is crammed with classic rock riffs, swinging beats, and up front, the sassy, done-up style of Max G. emoting loosely and wildly like a young David Johansen fronting the New York Dolls, possessing a crooner’s voice and a taste for style. You can pre-order via Bandcamp.

Dolled up in flashy get-ups, Max G.’s voice is a growly, beefy thing, a rangy tenor that belies his taste for soul shouters. The prevailing mood in modern indie garage rock is one of stylistic indifference, but that’s not how Yoko & the Oh No’s come across; these kiddos don’t just care, they care a lot. The album contains the crashing classic rock chorus of Heart Attack, the sneering She Knows It, and the distorted R&B groove of Nobody Wants to Know. Take a listen to She Aint Mine via Soundcloud below.

 

Yoko & the Oh No’s S/T album is their first for Autumn Tone Records, which has a knack for finding raw young bucks (turn up records by the Orwells, Twin Peaks, and Modern Vices as a testament).

1. She Knows It
2. She Ain’t Mine
3. Love U
4. Movin’ On
5. Heart Attack
