PREMIERE: Brighton outfit The Yellow Bellies amp up the grit on latest clip Crazy

Brighten-based outift The Yellow Bellies ain’t pulling punches with their new clip Crazy. Raw, unapologetic and bursting with youthful energy, this latest offering will have you banging your head and taking to the d-floor faster than a freight train.

Reilly Sams, Jack Yeoman, Nico Cara and George Preston make up the four-piece, striving to unleash a wave of good vibes for all their listeners. Fusing jazz, blues, classic ’60s rock and a dash of hip-hop, The Yellow Bellies bring a refreshingly new and vibrant tone to the scene.

Hailing from the UK, it’s no surprise that touches of Brit-pop infuse the track. Fans of high-energy outfits such as the The Wombats and Dune Rats will likely be drawn to this anthemic tune.

The Yellow Bellies

With its killer hook, youthful ambience and unparalleled energy, The Yellow Bellies are bound to get you bumping with latest clip Crazy.

The clip depicts a performance from the group shot in a gritty film format. For just under three-and-a-half minutes, we’re treated to a whole lot of young-blood antics warped by a vintage lens. Colourful and vibrant, the video harks to a more simple time while capturing a 2018 buzz.

The Yellow Bellies craft their unique and dynamic sound by evoking the essence of performance. With a tightly locked rhythm section and an embedded sense of groove, the group explore concepts of love, peace, freedom and happiness – just what we all need right now.

Distinctively more punk in texture than previous tracks Rosalita and Why, Crazy is also marked by modern romantic lyricism:

“I don’t care for your illusions. Even though they’re fancy and pretty and at times things can get messy. You know I need my seclusion. That don’t mean I don’t love you baby, I just need my space, and that ain’t so crazy.”

Give it just one listen and you’ll be hooked on the chewy riffs, zestful vocals and ripe narrative drive of The Yellow Bellies’ Crazy.
