Yeti is bass-driven philosophical dream-punk with cute killer harmonies. This New York-based trio reeks of feral femininity, fermenting in the forgotten woods of Staten Island. Their music fuses Sleater-Kinney sensibilities with The Cranberries’ emotional power.Yeti can be found playing at various venues throughout the New York City area, or in very cold, dark, remote caverns from which few have ever returned. Currently, they have one full-length album White Devil and anacoustic EP called Fur You. They are releasing their next full-length album Shadowhead in Spring 2014. Website
