Who knew that “O.N.E.,” Yeasayer’s second single off latest LP Odd Blood (Secretly Canadian), could sound even more like the greatest ’80s song that never was—even more so than its predecessor, “Ambling Alp”? Although the trio stuck to its formula of trippy, percussion-driven tracks, Odd Blood‘s first two singles are a bit more radio-friendly than anything off previous album, 2007’s All Hour Cymbals. Despite melancholy lyrics, the reverberating guitar chords of “O.N.E.” create quite possibly the bounciest, feel-good dance anthem of the year thus far. As a bonus, here’s an mp3 of “Ambling Alp,” as well.
