This is the debut release for Yeti, who have had a successful support slot on tour with Razorlight around the UK recently. Yeti make a light rock sound that could have come straight from the 1960s. This double-A side release features the heady and bright sound of ‘Never Lose Your Sense Of Wonder’ which suffers from sounding too much like Bob Dylan circa ‘Blonde on Blonde’ and not having as strong a vocal and lyrical content as Bob does. The result is pleasant but not particularly memorable. The other A-side is ‘Working For The Industry’, a song that keeps threatening to turn into a perverse combination of ‘People Are Strange’ and a piano knees-up.

The problem is they are a ‘nice’ sound; no barriers are being smashed down, no virtuoso playing or incisive lyrics here. If you want some music-to-do-something-else-to then this may be right up your street as it doesn’t demand attention and won’t jar or cause alarm.
