The Fresh & Onlys Announce UK Tour Dates and Full Stream of Album, Long Slow Dance

Following on from the success of their beautiful and woozily psychedelic fourth album, Long Slow Dance, released last September, San Francisco’s The Fresh & Onlys prepare to set off across the UK to play an array of live dates.

The quartet comprised of Tim Cohen, Shayde Sartin, Wymond Miles, and Kyle Gibson, got started in 2008 and look exactly like a biker gang composed of record store employees. T

he Fresh & Onlys are so comfortable with mixing and matching seemingly disparate genre elements that, as a listener, it’s easy to feel like a mouse batted about in a corner by a house cat. It is tasteful, of course, and it does this at the service of forceful songs that are frequently witty and often lovely.

You can now stream the full album, Long Slow Dance, here.

You can catch The Fresh & Onlys live on the following dates:
14 June – The Workman’s Club, DUBLIN
15 June – Broadcast, GLASGOW
16 June – Brudenell Social Club, LEEDS
17 June – The Haunt, BRIGHTON

The Fresh & Onlys – Yes or No

Souterrain Transmissions have announced their latest signing for August 2012, The Fresh & Onlys.

Stemming from San Francisco, they have had previous releases for labels like In The Red, Woodsist, Castle Face and a whole load more but their fourth EP will be released through Souterrain Transmissions titled Long Slow Dance. It will be available from 3 September.

But you don’t have to wait that long, they have just released 7″ single Yes or No on 18 June. Yes or No is a love song but not your typical ballad. Sounding distinctively American, The Fresh & Onlys have a grungey pop sound all their own. The swooping vocals mixed alongside the melodic guitar and classic drum beat makes Yes or No the perfect American indie track.

Bassist Shayde Sartain explains, “It was meant to be an anthem, but I guess you could say it was more desperate—the overwhelming desire to please someone and then feeling as though you have failed and being confused by that.”

The Fresh & Onlys are Tim Cohen, Shayde Sartin, Wymond Miles, and Kyle Gibson. They formed in 2008 and look like a bunch of bikers or record store employees.

The 7″ single comes with another unreleased track, Take Back The Night. You can buy Yes or No from iTunes. The Fresh & Onlys will be touring Autumn/Winter 2012. More details will follow.
