Say Yes, Do Nothing (sayyesdonothing.com) are a north London band whose gritty and poetic street reports on homelessness, abortion, abuse and alcoholism are a raw mix of the blues, alt/country and Americana.
“Best band name, ever” – New Music Saturday
Raw and tight, SYDN’s songtelling storywriting has an infectious character that howls, shakes, rattles and rolls, just as if Leonard Cohen was writing for the Yardbirds with a lairy Jimmy Page in tow.
“Timeless and aggressively up-to-date London grit with Nashville dirt underpinned by deeply rooted Americana song craft” – Rock Box
Winners of the 2108 Future Music Showcase Award, American singer songwriter David Eastman (vocals/guitar) formed SYDN in Kentish Town, London, where he found Simon (bass/vocals), Michael (drums) and Dan (lead guitar/vocals) hiding in a dark rehearsal space, ready to do justice to his songs of love gone awry and families gone rogue. When not writing, Dave spends his time managing medical relief in the world’s worst war zones.
“SYDN take a real-life situation and have the intestinal fortitude to put it into lyrics and into a song, and it’s going to reach a lot of people” – The Mind of Little Rage
“When the band begins to play there is an engulfing wave of nostalgia, coupled with an inescapable feeling that nostalgia is what caused this mess in the first place” – By The Freaks
