Orlando, Florida post-hardcore outfit I Met a Yeti dropped their latest single “All Magic Users Swim In The Loomy Gloom” on August 16th. The single is off the five-piece band’s sophomore EP Camp Yeti which is due out October 4th. “All Magic Users” is an explosive track of intricate lead guitars and R&B inspired vocal melodies that can only be described as beautiful. Every performance on this track is executed with deadly precision; guitarists Anthony Gonzales and Ricardo Antonio Rodriguez provide some aggressive riffage and clean-cut lead sections, while bassist Lui Wancel and drummer Alexander Torresola hold down an absolutely air-tight rhythm section. Vocalist Daisy Chamberlin delivers a wonderful vocal performance ladened with soaring harmonies and infectious melodies, but do not be mistaken; Chamberlin’s screamed vocals are a true testament to their vocal prowess.
I Met a Yeti broke into the math rock scene during the summer of 2016 with their single “Windows.” The track features a cacophony of clean toned guitars, dreamy vocal melodies, and somber screams. The five-piece released their debut EP …I Can Still See You later that year just before Christmas; the release features face-melting tracks such as “Is It Free, Or Isn’t It?” and “Where’s Nelson?” which ends with a rather cheeky quote by Sassy the Sasquatch from DIY animator Jarrad Wright’s critically acclaimed web-series, The Big Lez Show.
The band will be embarking on an eight day tour of the southeast and Texas in support of Camp Yeti. This tour will kick off on October 13th in Denton, Texas and conclude on October 21st in Orlando. “All Magic Users Swim In The Loomy Gloom” is currently available on all major streaming platforms.
