Yes Cadets Bio
An enticing mix of sensual, reverb-drenched guitars and edgy, rhythmic art-pop, Belfast-based Yes Cadets feature singer/guitarist Alan Haslam, singer/ drummer Lisa Mageean and bassist Steven Matthews. The trio began playing together in 2009, crafting a distinctive sound inspired by everyone from LCD Soundsystem and The Knife to The Cure and My Bloody Valentine.
They rapidly gained buzz for their magnetic live performance, earning high profile festival slots acrossEurope(Glastonbury,MiDEM,BerlinFestival) and support slots with luminaries The Antlers, Yuck and Guillemots.
An early, home recorded version of the Yes Cadets track ‘Le Mans’ was picked up by the BBC and soon playlisted on daytime Radio 1. Brimming with atmospheric pop hooks and pulsing cinematic lament, ‘Le Mans’ made waves amongst the indie-pop blogosphere and the mainstream music press alike whilst still only in raw demo form
