In conversation with Yellow Creatures who launch new avante garde E.P ‘ Spectrum’

Spectrum’ is the third EP from Newcastle based Yellow Creatures.

Spectrum EP Cover

It follows their 2014 release  ‘The Year of Everything & Nothing’ EP  which saw the band being selected to play the BBC 6 Music Festival in 2015  where they were introduced by Tom Robinson.

Yellow Creatures influences range from current pop and alternative artists such as Tame Impala, Solange and Radiohead to the 1960s Musique Concrete of Delia Derbyshire.

After exploring a more synth-driven direction on their 2015 track ‘Calendar Man’  which was included in The Tipping Point blog and received airplay on BBC Introducing, Spectrum’ is the most developed and experimental record Yellow Creatures have released to date.

The seven songs are a collage of found sounds and pop melodies incorporating field recordings, electronic beats, swelling synths and polyrhythmic drums.

Lyrically  ‘Spectrum’ is dreamy and pensive with frontman Marc Bird exploring themes both personal and universal.

‘Last Census’ is a frenzied  pulsating prophecy of what life might be like after the last-ever census on Earth  while ‘Pressing Buttons’ is a shimmering, euphoric ode to how modern technology affects our personal relationships.

The EP will be available to download from on 27th February and is available now to pre-order along with a free download of lead track ‘Spectrum’


What’s your sound ?

Futuristic alt-pop, interspersed with ambient synth and found sound textures and polyrhythmic drums

What is your new E.P Spectrum focused on ?

Our single ‘Spectrum’ is about how the nature of relationships is affected by modern technologies, and how people see the world and themselves differently.

Do you write your own material ?


What’s your take on the new music industry and the web ?

Its changed the playing field so much for both better and worse. It’s never been easier to produce your own music it but this also means the competition is much greater. Like anything its better not to look at the bigger picture as long as you enjoy the music you play and feel that it’s worth while.

What do you like to do when not making music ?

Reading, relaxing, seeing friends. Watching Sunderland AFC and Crewe Alexandra frequently fight relegation.

What other bands or artists do you like ?

Frank Ocean, Solange.
