We Used To Make Things Release New Single 'Yes Man'

'Yes Man' is the new single from East London band We Used To Make Things. Taken from their self-titled album released last year,  the song is a chaotic, angry cry against apathy and dissatisfaction.

The eight-piece group formed after frontman, Matthew, lost his job as a youth worker in the name of austerity. Disillusioned with life, he began to write lyrics about the kind of world we live in.

Self-producing their own album, the band are very enthusiastic about their DIY ethics. The group describe the record as a mix of The Specials' horn section, The Kinks’ worldview, The Beatles’ hooks, The Beach Boys’ harmonies, The Divine Comedy’s wit and Elbow’s grandeur.

The video for 'Yes Man' can be watched below and the full album, We Used To Make Things, can be found on all streaming sites.
