While plenty of indie bands see fit to live largely in the realm of texture and atmosphere, skilled at creating vibe but unable to translate that into something that sticks as more than mood music. New York band Yellerkin‘s debut single “Solar Laws” displayed the band’s gift for putting driving emotion and considerable structural muscle into their sparkly, indie folk stew.

The early signs of the group’s ability to buck the meandering ways of some of their contemporaries bear out on their succinct, stellar self-titled EP–particularly on the two previously unreleased songs from the project, “Leave Me Be” and “Tomboy,” both beautiful and built on a versatile, thoroughly modern production palette and songwriting sensibility that expand upon the promise of “Solar Laws.”
