"Single review San Francisco Bay"

Whilst in my small room at my University in Wales, I was asked to review ‘San Francisco Bay’, which is the latest single by a band called Yellowgroove, who are a Bournemouth/Bristol based group that fork out folky blues-rock grooves that lick the ladle of bands like Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Cream, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.

This track demonstrates a smooth and warm feel to the band’s sound, echoing the summery vibes of the late 60s with similarities to iconic band, The Beatles. The chorus is catchy, but not enough to wedge it into the glorified subcategory of songs which grind into you. The chorus flows through nicely between the verses and a constant chilled vibe makes this an ideal song to accompany the warm breeze on a summer evening. If you’re looking for a song to kick back, relax and reminisce of the gorgeous summer times, then blast this tune out this winter and you may not even feel the summer has passed you by.

A day of piercing sunlight and screaming gulls on the Jurassic Coast, a vintage Les Paul with only 4 strings and a rock full of fossils were where Yellowgroove was born. Summer 2008 was a good one…

Cutting their teeth in the time-honoured fashion of sweat, roaring amps and claustrophobic music venues, Yellowgroove grew from the ground up. The band’s efforts began to flourish as they journeyed from gig to gig across the south coast, their folky blues-rock grooves licking the ladle of Led Zeppelin, Cream and the Black Keys.

“Rampaging through pop-length tunes with a style and panache that sets them apart from many of the rest of the live acts around”.

The ‘groove’s down-to-earth approach went hand in hand with an eco-ethos, which was proudly paraded when the band were revealed on a wider stage at the Isle of Wight Festival 2010, arriving in particular style on a rickety sailboat. Their veggie-fat-powered van, with an A-team style yellow groove painted around its chassis, beat a stomping path behind them on the ferry.

London based producers The Animal Farm soon cottoned on to the band’s unique howl, and invited Yellowgroove to their studio. After a roller-coaster week of burning midnight oil, the band emerged with three soulful singles ready to be unleashed upon the Isles.
