After teasing us with three singles from their upcoming album Amen & Goodbye, Yeasayer served us another appetizer titled “Gerson’s Whistle” today. It has a deliberate arrangement of synth-dominated tunes and acoustic momentums of piano taps with string slides that is light enough to digest, but amply refined to seize your ears:

Amen & Goodbye will be out on April’s Fools Day (aka April 1). The Brooklyn experimental pop trio formed back in 2006 and aside from their ear eccentric sound, they became known for using psychedelic visuals in their live performances and opening up for bands like MGMT. Now, they are one of the most in-demand groups for festival season:
