YonenDublin instrumentalists gigging this week

What you may need to know…

01. Dublin four-piece Yonen ply an exploratory, proggy, and in places jazzy take on post-rock.

02. Formed after those involved were inspired to do so, upon seeing Japanese instrumental trailblazers Toe perform, they quickly set about releasing a performance video for debut single Nuatum.

03. Streaming above is the band’s most recent single, Sanctos, available for free/pay-what-you-want download via Bandcamp. The whole odyssey was recorded live (!) at Volt Studios and mixed by the band’s guitarists.

04. Catch them this Thursday night at the Roisín Dubh in Galway supporting Brighton’s Poly-Math, and this Saturday night at the Spirit Store in Dundalk, headlining the main stage of the venue’s Oktoberfest proceedings.

VERDICT: Taking elements of the post-rock and math-rock oeuvres and repositioning them as suits the moment, like kids with Lego, Yonen are a joyful proposition to take in.
