This is a very novel album, guitarist and with energetic choruses. The LP of the duo collects several singles published over several years, but that is why it is still a compact disc. Yawners’ music can be tremendously evocative and absolutely motivating and lively. “Big riffs, big feelings, big tunes. Yawners high energy indie rock feels like a crush.”

Fizzy power-pop duo Yawners are two hometown heroes crafting keen, thoughtful hooks in Madrid’s guitar rock renaissance. Elena Nieto writes her songs on her sleeve, matching earnest, hyper-self-aware lyrics with punched-up riffs and Martin Muñoz’s frenetic drumming. Yawners’ 2019 debut album Just Calm Down captured the manic energy and bone-tired comfort of long summer afternoons, as on “La Escalera,” the album’s only Spanish-language track, whose chorus Nieto wrote as her mom called her down the stairs for dinner. Yawners are the sugar high and the sugar crash and the limitless feeling of both.

“Please, Please, Please” appears on Yawners debut LP “Just Calm Down”, released by La Castanya on LP, CD, and Digital on March 22nd, 2019.

The punchy Spanish rock band Yawners cites Weezer’s early records as an influence, and damned if Just Calm Down doesn’t conjure that exact reference point: The new album marries a slacker’s drawl to a candied wall of guitars that’d fit cozily into any college-rock and power-pop era of the last 40 years. Singer-songwriter Elena Nieto stands astride Yawners’ bright, brooding anthems with a star’s charisma and the dexterity of a guitar hero. “Big riffs, big feelings, big tunes. Yawners high energy indie rock feels like a crush.”
