Yancy

Yancy are loud (and friendly) on "Hi Neighbor," play Alphaville 3.19

New York trio Yancy appropriately named their 2018 LP Hi, Neighbor! — their noisy, melodic punk and seemingly upbeat demeanors indicate they’re more than likely to have their fair share of run-ins with the folks next door, though you’d expect them to be friendly in mitigating any noise disturbances. Such bright energy is the consequence of a conscious decision to base their sound around triumphant guitar riffs and a bombastic vocal performance that sounds like the the lovechild of Tim Kinsella and Ian MacKaye. As such, their music is well suited for a specific subset of aggressive yet well-tempered individuals, tunes for people who bare wide grins in a mosh pit. Give it a listen below, and catch Yancy at Alphaville on March 19th.
