Yours & Mine: Retro tunes with a modern twist

Yours & Mine has just released the debut single “Crying”.  The  three piece Indie-Pop band, based on the Isle of Wight, was formed in 2011 after Marc Dyer (vocals and guitar) and Nathan Webber (drums and backing vocals) got together for a few practices and then decided to play songs written by Marc. Later, they asked around on Facebook for a bass player and met Jordan Simpkins. The band was named after a lyric in the song “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” by Crosby, Stills and Nash.

Yours & Mine musical inspiration ranges from 50s/60s to late 70s punk. The influence from bands and artists such as Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, The Byrds Small Faces, Rolling Stones, Motown: Holland-Dozier-Holland songwriting, Buzzcocks, Clash, and the Jam can be clearly recognized in their work. But they add more than a modern twist to their songs. Their own original style comes out strongly and firmly.

The band has already 2 gigs confirmed for London. The  first will be this Saturday, the 8th of December  at the World’s End, Finsbury Park.  On February 26th of the next year, they will be playing at Dublin Castle in Camden Town. Marc Dyer says that the band is looking forward to playing in the big capital again: “We love the atmosphere and you always feel the buzz of the city when you play there! Should be a great night!”
