"Q&A With THe See"


"It’s just about inarguable: The See are the kings of Little Rock’s current landscape of bands. In the town’s musical yearbook in a time where local music is experiencing a renaissance, they’re holding down the Who’s Who “Most Likely to Succeed” in a sea of other wildly talented acts."

"The Best Neighborhood Party of the Year"

"If there's cosmic justice, the See (3 p.m.) should be headed for national success. The young trio plays a brand of blistering, anthemic indie rock that's made them Little Rock's favorite new band." - The Arkansas Times

"Friday-to-Do: The See EP Release Party"

10 p.m., Sticky Fingerz.

There are few, if any, new local bands with as much buzz surrounding them as the See. Formed last summer by Tyler Nance (drums), Joe Yoder (vocals) and Dylan Yelenich (bass/keyboard), the trio's built its reputation on steady gigging and a sturdy, infectious brand of indie rock that recalls power trios of yore. You know, back before everything got all twee and feely. Or went disco. In other words, the See offers the right mix of dissonance and melody, features a drummer who beats the hell out of his kit (not long ago that meant he spent the last song of the band's set standing up) and a bassist/keyboardist who plays meaty riffs and typically bounces around the stage like he's having a seizure. Plus, lead singer Yoder — tall, broad-shouldered, with short hair, a beard and severe eyes — looks kind of like an evil Russian wrestler and isn't afraid to fist pump unironically. Paired with big, earnest vocals, that helps give everything an epic, anthemic quality. All the qualities we've come to expect in the band live come across in its fine new EP, “Bars of Gold.”" - Arkansas Times


Bars of Gold EP (2009, self-released; re-release forthcoming on Thick Syrup Records)



The See formed in 2008 after former Little Rock natives Joe Yoder (guitar/vocals) and Tyler Nance (drums) returned home with the intention of focusing on music. Joined by bassist Dylan Yelenich and guitarist Louis Watts, the four quickly established themselves in the Little Rock bar scene. When Louis Watts relocated to Brooklyn in late 2008, the three remaining members continued on, recording and releasing the Bars of Gold EP in early 2009. Recorded by Will Boyd (Evanescence, American Princes) and self-released by the group, the album's first press sold out in a matter of days. The band spent the rest of 2009 writing new material and playing out often in the region. With the addition of Chicago-refugee Eric Morris, The See have toured extensively, sharing stages with the likes of Cursive, Frightened Rabbit, El Ten Eleven, Midstates, Tiger City. 2010 promises the release of their first full-length, an appearance at SXSW, and a full tour of the midwest and east coast.
