Yellow Stripe Nine formed in Leeds in January of 2002. They quickly became a riveting live act and were named the best unsigned band of 2002 by Leeds Student Radio. The release of the 'Look Sharp' demo at the beginning of 2003 was awarded a rare 4.5 out of 5 by the notoriously hard-to-please LeedsMusicScene.com and was described as displaying "an emotional intensity and passion far too much ignored in modern pop music". In July 2003, the band finished recording their second demo album 1 White Horse.
Off of the new forth coming album One Look is another explosive mixture of rampant contagious pop drama all intoxicating and affectionately packed in to a three minute opretta, dry cured with the very finest essences drawn from influences such as the Sparks and ABC and shamelessly substantiated by a steely eyed beach party twanging groove that is so vampishly cool.
It's all interesting stuff and its always good to hear the local talent breaking through on the Yorkshire scene, we have some pretty cool bands coming through at the moment with the likes of the 'Artic Monkeys' and 'The Rise' to name but a few. These are exciting times up here in the the North for the music scene at the moment and that's a fact.
I'm not sure the album has been released as of yet, however you can find out more about Yellow Stripe Nine and listen to more of their tracks here or find out more about Leeds Music Scene here.
