Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin Fly By Wire on Clear 180g LP + Poster + Download
Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin returned to the attic where they made their debut full-length Broom. Phil Dickey, Will Knauer, and Jonathan James spent up to twelve hours a day working on the songs that would become Fly By Wire. With James assuming the role of engineer, Dickey and Knauer wrote lyrics and guitar parts on a third floor windowsill and recorded vocals in the staircase.
This laid-back approach to recording is clearly evident in the album’s warm, welcoming sound. From the scuzzy-paired-with-sunny guitar rhythms on handclap-aided first single "Nightwater Girlfriend" to the mid-tempo electro-pop of "Harrison Ford," the songs on Fly By Wire are just plain fun to listen to.
Drawing as much from the pop-punk power chords their brains were wired to love as teens in the late 90s, as the multilayered pop of the 60s and 70s they strive to emulate, SSLYBY has been writing songs for over a decade based on the timeless principles of beautiful melodies and good harmonies.
As a result, the music they create is nothing if not universal. Mixed by Sonny DiPerri (Portugal The Man, STRFKR). Gatefold Coke bottle clear 180g vinyl LP with 11" x 17" foldout collage poster and download.
"It’s refreshing to have a band survive a hype storm and come out sounding fresh, well studied, and amongst the finest in the present crop of young indie-pop songwriters." - Stereogum
"Damn, if their pop chops aren’t convincing..." - Pitchfork
