Biography

Blind Yackety is a constantly evolving seven-piece band, incorporating a myriad of influences, from fifties’ lounge pop to psychedelic, Arabic soul music, to Ennio Morricone-esque climaxes.
The sound is spun with multi-layered vocal harmonies, tropical rhythms and spidery guitar, and is at once hypnotic and immediate. Moments of gentle serenity are interrupted by passionate, driving choruses and sudden hopeful impulses. These are songs that call for light in an apparently cold and meaningless modern world.

Blind Yackety released their highly anticipated debut album,
Fences and Furnaces, on the 23rd of November 2012 in Whelan’s.

After playing Whelan’s Ones to Watch 2013, Blind Yackety have been gigging and touring various dates around the country. Highlights of 2013 have been two dates at Body & Soul, Longitude,headline slot on Jack of Diamonds stage at
Knockanstockan and The Salty Dog at Electric Picnic.

In July the track ‘Sanity’ was put up on soundcloud as a taster of what is a work in progress second album.
