The Do Yo Thangs are back with Those Days, another slice of minty fresh R&B with a twist. A Darker, more electronic musical direction sees the band take their staple of 808 kick drums and tight vocal harmonies into almost Little Dragonesque territories with frenetic drum programming, growling synthesizers and fuzz bass.
The sentimental songwriting and soulful vocals are classic Do Yo Thangs, from Audrey Powne’s sensual lead track to the richly harmonised and layered ensemble vocals supporting her. This song is the Do Yo’s longing for the freedoms of youth in a world of stress, responsibility and pressure. Adulting is hard – even for musicians apparently.
