Blind Yackety are a group of individuals in constant restless flux. Pulling together a swarm of influences, from psychedelic pop and Arabic soul music, to delicate chamber folk and seething Ennio Morricone-esque climaxes, they create music at once hypnotic and immediate. Spun with multi-layered vocal harmonies, tropical rhythms and spidery guitar, these are songs that call for light in an apparently cold and meaningless modern world.
After a 7’’ Split Single release with Gypsy Rebel Rabble, Blind Yackety released their debut album, Fences and Furnaces in November 2012 with a sold out show at Whelan’s. Since then, they’ve been touring their incredible, unpredictable and intense live show and getting ready to record their second album in April 2014.
