Yeasayer – Reagan’s Skeleton (single) (Secretly Canadian)
“Reagan’s Skeleton” is the new single lifted off Yeasayer’s brilliant third album ‘Fragrant World’, which was released back in August.
While the Brooklyn trio’s danceable disco grooves are firmly intact, “Reagan’s Skeleton” is a moody synth-pop number that recalls old Depeche Mode mixed with Dr. Who-like synth psychedelics. Riddled with hooks and ridicioously catchy, after just one listen this track will be yours forever.
As odd as it may be to say, “Reagan’s Skeleton” also has touches of Kasabian’s more danceable moments (think “L.S.F.” and “I.D.”) throughout – this is no more evident than during the vocal section at 3:35.
“Reagan’s Skeleton” is a great little number but just falls ever short off making you lose your shit completely. Be sure to check out the tasty synth work at 3:20.
Turn it up and shake your ass.
