Review: Yeti Love’s new single Lonely Road

The latest single from Yeti Love is a boisterous display of rhythmic acoustic guitar and a heartfelt vocal that we can’t get enough of. The lively strumming provides an exciting intro on its own, but when paired with vocalist Peter Hamilton’s growly, rock ‘n roll tinged vocal the track really comes into its own in the best possible way. At a fairly brief 2 minutes and 43 seconds long, it’s short but sweet, yet it’s masterfully constructed in that it leaves us wanting more. Check it out below…

The Acoustic-Folk duo have blues and rock influences that probably stem from Peter’s many years as a drummer in rock bands, whilst the folky elements come from Dave Sears on guitar. It’s a truly captivating combination. Their vocal harmonies are a highlight and work extremely well to create an intense and often heartfelt mood throughout.

They cite a massive range of influences, including Tom Waits, Ben Harper, Blind Melon and even progressive rockers Tool, as well as Springsteen’s The Ghost of Tom Joad in their guitar style. From this list alone you can tell that Yeti Love are going to be pretty interesting with regards to their musical output…

In addition to this, Peter’s background (he’s half Spanish) also contributes to the overall sound, with discernable Latin grooves running through their music.

Lonely Road is taken from their eponymous debut album, which was released last year, and after supporting the likes of Boy Hits Car and Nick Oliveri (who you might recognise from Queens of the Stone Age) they are now embarking on their own album tour.

They’re playing at The Cyclist in Brighton on the 13th March, and we strongly suggest you get yourselves down.
