At first blush, the harmony shared by Emily Ritz and Kacey Johansing harkens to a classic folk sensibility thanks to the earthy tones of their respective voices. Throw in the dueling guitars and the duo known as Yesway would have a perfectly contained folk album on their hands. However, add the flighty notes contributed by Vibraphone player Andrew Maguire and what you have is a dreamy, spaced out brand of alternative folk.
To better understand where this self-titled debut’s free flowing, multicolor nature came from; look no further than Ritz and Johansing’s origins in the San Francisco music scene. Before meeting in 2006, the pair had their own respective musical endeavors. To this day, Johansing is a solo artist, while, Ritz is a member of the band, DRMS. However, in 2010, the duo was united as a part of the experimental folk group, Honeycomb. It was then that the two best friends and longtime admirers of each other’s music were able to join creative forces, planting the seeds for the project known as Yesway.
The pair’s sublime vocal collaboration shines ever so brightly on their self-titled debut set to be released on June 3. Throw in the spellbinding melodies and Yesway effectively paints a vivid picture with their sonics. Whether it is their spatial, colorful, or elemental ways of manipulating the melody, Yesway deliver an immersive debut.
Imagine the soft induction of a trance-like state. That’s how Yesway kick off this record, not with a bang, but with a whisper with “Whoaocean.” The calling vocal refrains of ah’s and ooh’s bring about a sense of serenity, keeping time with the rapid rise and fall of the dual guitars. By the second track, “Let Go,” the listener has no other choice but to give into the dream. Close your eyes and let the hypnotic waves wash over your consciousness. The ambiance of the serene vocal to and fro and the swirling effects are just a taste of the mind-bending capabilities this duo has.
“Home” is warm and fuzzy. “Drawing back the curtain,” the amber glow of sunshine radiates from this bright track. The rapid chord progression mixed with the shimmering ambient effects make for an invigorating entry. On the flipside of that comfort in familiarity track is “Carried Away,” a frozen in time melody that presses together the constraints of time. In a shade of icy white, the chill of this isolating song becomes more apparent around the halfway point. The build-up of tense chords into a suffocating bass echo closes the walls in on this claustrophobic ditty. “Avalanche” completes this three part progression from warm to frigid with an ice water in the veins song. The solo vocals “cry icicles” that are in need of thawing out by the rekindling of fire in the heart again. The buzzing of the taut chords gives off a subtle, frazzled yet unexpected feeling. All three songs show off Yesway as elemental manipulators. The duo can just as easily leave you out in the cold as they can warm you up with their fire and ice routine.
“Sun Through Feathers” takes flight with the opening forty-five seconds of breezy vocals that rustle the leaves that have dropped to the ground in this autumnal rendition. From there, the duo’s impeccable vocal synchronicity rides the current created by the tempered cymbal rattles and light, earthy chords. In contrast, in terms of seasons, “Winter Willing” is akin to the first gentle, snowflakes of the season; captivating while they fall, as the delicate guitar on this track exemplifies, but are only the precursor to a vigorous squall. These are the flurries that coat the ground before the real show begins, not an onslaught, but a perfect winter’s portrait. In both songs, Yesway effectively recreates that mind’s eye picture of these transitional times with splendorous guitar and vocal work.
Ritz and Johansing are kindred, vocal spirits. It is astonishing to hear how in sync they are and the beautiful sound they make together as one. Together, they have a superbly unique soulful voice. This self-titled debut is a showcase of not only their vocal skills, but their ability to captivate with enthralling melodies. Yesway’s debut is the complete package with the added bonus of immersive melodies.
