Yeasayer – Olympia Theatre, Dublin


**Live at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin**

Monday 18th October

Tickets on sale next Tuesday

Yeasayer treat fans to very special performance in the intimate surroundings of the Olympia Theatre on Monday 18 October.

Tickets are on sale at 9am next Tuesday 20th July priced €23 (Ground Floor Standing/Circle Seating) and €20 (Upper Circle Seating).

Having already played one of the gigs of the year in February at the Academy, Yeasayer stormed through a blistering set on the 2fm Hot Press Academy stage last Saturday at Oxegen. If their debut LP All Hour Cymbals was Yeasayer’s attempt at global and ambient cultural mash-up then their new record Odd Blood takes place on an off-world colony sometime after the singularity.

Glimmering reverb haze is eschewed and replaced by a cavalcade of disorienting pitch effects and flickering ectoplasmic wisps. Instead of layered vocal harmonies the penitent processed vocals congeal into blots and blobs of otherworldly chatter.

Many organic elements are left behind and replaced by truly unique sounds and rhythms that inspire the body as much as the mind. At times, Yeasayer sound as if they would be at home playing live in scene from Blade Runner or inside one of Oscar Neimeyer’s concrete modernist temples from the 1960s.

Tickets for Yeasayer are on sale from Tuesday at 9am.
