(CHICAGO, IL | YEAHDUDEMUSIC.COM)
WHY YOU’LL LIKE THEM: A band created from the ashes of other bands, Yeah Dude are a small little Chicago act using their influences in a way they should be used. Instead of attempting to please everyone, the group perspire catchy melodies without hesitation and fear of falling into the bottomless pit of mainstream indie. “Can’t See” and “Shaking The Tree (So Long)” play with pop, alternative rock and indie punk gang vocals that barely sound like other creations that swing with more teenage appeal (“+1”). When they channel the Foo Fighters/underground rock influence – as they do so well during “No One Knows Exactly What They’re Doing)” – Yeah Dude show they can write songs that don’t need to ask to be heard or put on repeat.
