Ever had that experience of waking up in the middle of a wondrous dream, the vivid colors still swirling around your half-conscious brain as you groggily grope in the dark for the snooze button on your alarm clock, your perception of reality completely shattered for a few blessed moments?  That’s kinda what listening to Yesway feels like.  Their music, like a dream, is equal parts seductively haunting and alluringly gorgeous, balancing harmonic dissonance with compelling melodies.  And, again like a dream, you can never quite guess where the song is going to take you.

Consisting of friends Emily Ritz and Kacey Johansing, both veterans of the local experimental folk/indie scene, the duo is set to release their eponymous debut album on June 3rd.  The first single from the LP, “Howlin’ Face”, is out now.  Listen and dream.
