“I wanted to write a song with more political undertones and this was around the time of the UK elections, a lot of people seemed to be angry about the elected candidate and their policies, which in turn inspired the song. The name derived from the dark.” – @BandYesterday

MUSIC REVIEW AND INTERVIEW

Music Review for Down Deep In The Blue 

The Yorkshire music scene has grown dramatically, in the past when people suggested that there would be bands from Yorkshire making it to number 1 in the charts people would mock and laugh; now things have changed. So, let's talk about "Yesterday, a group with an intoxicating and uplifting sound, hailing from Yorkshire, England - this up and coming 4 piece rock band have all of the makings of successful group. 

And these guys have attitude, I mean - this is Yorkshire; this is what it is all about the sheer confidence and attitude that makes it different.

Overall, this is a high class, truly innovative rock band that sets the bar for other groups in their field. The overall production quality is certainly good enough for radio - Take a listen to their hit single "Down Deep In The Blue" being played on Kiss 104.7 FM. You can see how their accessible sound will appeal to a wide range of people, so I expect them to build up a large fanbase worldwide, over time.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Back in May Peter, Mark and Lewis answered some questions for Exposedvocals.com, Here's what happened.

Exposed Vocals: How did you hear about Exposed Vocals? What made you decide to sign up?

Peter: I was direct messaged on Twitter and we were very excited by what was available.

Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?

Lewis: Willerby Yorkshire England, after a few daft ideas of wanting to be a band at Christmas (2010) I got a bass, the other lads got their instruments and we became a band.

Mark: We all attended school together. We were all interested in music and we thought why can’t we try being a band, so we made the leap before we learned our instruments.

Exposed Vocals: How did you come up with that name? What was your inspiration behind it?

Peter: Mark and I had always though that 'Yesterday' sounded like a band name and it was the best one we could come up with. 

Mark: it also worked in our favour as we usually play an older style of rock music.

Lewis: Yesterday was the best name we'd come up with, better than one utterly rubbish suggestion of Toxic 4

Exposed Vocals: What do you think about online music sharing? Do you ever give your music away for free? Why?

Peter: We think it's great when you're just trying to get heard as anyone can listen to you online. We give our music away free on Bandcamp and Soundcloud but we have tried selling our music on iTunes with limited success. The main goal really is just to let people who like our music listen to it.

Mark: I think streaming services like Spotify is the best middle ground for getting paid and making it available for free listening.

Exposed Vocals: Since everyone was a start-up once, can you give any smaller or local bands or artists looking to get gigs and airplay some tips? 

Mark: The more you practice the better you get.

Peter: It only gets easier really, on a music making level. For us, our albums are the main goal and to allow us to get better we just write and record as many as we can as fast as possible. Although, getting exposure is quite challenging, it's a good thing to focus on what you, as an artist, want to be first.

Exposed Vocals: Do you ever make mistakes during performances? How do you handle that?

Mark: When someone finishes half way through a song, being me, just make sure everybody else does and then it looks rehearsed. 

Peter: Play original songs and most people won't notice, if you make a mistake in the words or structure just say that it's an exclusive live version.

Lewis: All the time it's a laugh making mistakes, all part of life mistakes, if you can't handle mistakes being a musician or having any sort of career where public performance is involved, where mistakes are bound to happen isn't the right path for you.

Exposed Vocals: Do you tour? Anything interesting happen on tour that you think our readers would enjoy hearing about?

Peter: We don't tour but we do play live when we can, this one time we booked a show on a date that a charity event wanted. So we said they can have our date if we can play and long story short it was packed out and turned out to be our best ever gig. 

Mark: We're looking forward to playing some more charity events during summer. 

Exposed Vocals: Where do you usually gather songwriting inspiration? What is your usual songwriting process?

Peter: We can't seem to stop, we have just released our new album Hyper Realism and we have two more in the works!

Lewis: From a certain girl, being drunk or at three to four in the morning when your mind wants to sleep, so it goes all Alice in wonderland.

Mark: Most of us approach song writing as a series of musical blocks, once we’ve written four or five bits we just put it in order and turn the bits into a verse, chorus or whatever we’re feeling on the day. 

Exposed Vocals: Do you have a band website? What online platforms do you use to share your music?

Peter: Yes we have a website built on FourFour but we like Bandcamp best for easy access to our albums. Soundcloud is great for getting a song uploaded fast and finding out what people think.

Website: http://www.yesterday.fourfour.com/home

Band Camp: https://yesterdayhull.bandcamp.com/

Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/yesterday-hull

Exposed Vocals: What are some really embarrassing songs that we might find on your mp3 player?

Peter: My Computer by Prince, if you haven't heard it before it's an up-tempo ballad about surfing the Internet. 

Lewis: A bit of Belinda Carlisle she was on point in her day, Frankie Valli and the four seasons - December 1963 (oh what a night) - total feel good anthem and any 70s disco track, can't beat disco songs.

Mark: The Final Countdown by Europe, I just love that over the top 80’s rock sound!

Exposed Vocals: If you were given half a million dollars and a year off, what would you do? How would you spend it?

Mark: I’d buy lots of microphones and other music gear to create a studio, buy a house and give some money to my family.

Lewis: I’d buy a proper Hofner 64 violin bass, a 60s Rickenbaker bass, a 60s Vox AC100 amp, some Lemon 714 and I’d have a massive house party then put what's left in the bank.

Peter: I would love to have some crazy instruments custom made like they have in Muse and build a hand picked Neve mixing desk for an amazing sound. It would also be great fun to try a Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways style project to test out some of the legendary studios first hand.

Exposed Vocals: Any planned studio upgrades? What are you working with now?

Mark: We’re working with a small studio in our house at the minute, we’ve got a nice collection of mics from Shure, Blue, AKG, MXL and Rodes to some cool studio outboard gear. I’d personally like some Cascade microphones.

Peter: We’re currently running Cubase pro 8, Reason 8 and Pro Tools 11 but I’d like to add Komplete 10 and Machine to the collection. So many bands get great sounding songs out of it.

Exposed Vocals: How do you find ways to promote your music? What works best for you?

Lewis: Posters in the local takeaway gets the best looking girls to the gigs.

Peter: Tunecore’s great for getting your release to a global audience on all major platforms. Although I’d recommend to take it one release at a time because it gets expensive fast.

Exposed Vocals: If you could perform anywhere and with any artists (Dead or Alive) where and who would it be with? Why?

Lewis: Bruce Springsteen back in the 80s when he was huge in the states, probably in California or Texas since he's the boss and he was the best looking man I've ever seen.

Peter: Queen in the late 80’s at Wembley stadium because it’s such a stunning concert.

Mark: With ZZ Top live in Texas because I could imagine the atmosphere would be incredible.

Exposed Vocals: So, what’s next? Any new upcoming projects that you want to talk about?

Peter: We’re very excited about our next album, Liquid State, which is about 80% finished. It should be out for the end of summer if everything goes to plan.

Mark: We also have a Concept Album in the works which might be finished by the end of the year.

Exposed Vocals: If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing?

Lewis: If I weren't playing music I'd probably have been still playing football, working, going partying but all with a little less ego.

Mark: Doing some form of creative medium like art or animation.

Peter: I would enjoy anything creative really but I don’t really know what.

Exposed Vocals: Do you remember buying your first album? Who was it? What was going through your head?

Peter: Yes, I remember buying The Darkness’s Permission To Land, it was modern classic rock which blew my mind and it’s a fantastic album, I’m just glad they’ve reformed.

Lewis: The Beatles, Pease Please Me and then I bought all the rest chronological because it was the beginning of my love of the Beatles and really the spark that set me to play bass.

Mark: Boston’s Greatest hits. Songs like Foreplay/longtime and Peace of Mind are incredible songs.

Exposed Vocals: How do you juggle the rest of your responsibilities while trying to stay ahead in your music life?

Peter: At the moment I’m doing a Music Production Degree so my work life is my music life

Lewis: It's quite easy really, work comes first since it’s my primary form of income. Band comes second since I've earned £20 in total off it.

Exposed Vocals: What should fans look forward to in 2015?

Lewis: Hopefully some exciting gigs, where we’ll attempt a dance song that will be an absolute party for the audience. Since that's what it's all about having a party and some drunk antics on stage.

Mark: More albums and projects, maybe a follow up to Hyper Realism.

 

Peter: Some more gigs including some charity events and we’re looking forward to playing Hogfest in August.
